Central Tenants & Fireworks: Safety and Regulations

Central Couple Holding Sparklers TogetherWhen so many of us look back on the sultry summer nights of our youth, our memories are generally made up of lighting sparklers and setting off colorful fireworks. A big part of summertime fun is the fireworks, yet for owners of single-family rental homes in Central, they come with dangerous risks. Even when taking all necessary precautions, and even if you’re just lighting small fireworks, things can easily go awry. There is a real danger of not only personal injury but property damage whenever you combine fire and explosives.

On the authority of the National Fire Prevention Association, fireworks caused 11,000 injuries and 4 deaths in 2016. As well as personal injury, the NFPA reveals that fireworks start an average of 18,500 fires each year. 1,300 of those are structural fires and 300 are vehicle fires. It’s a piece of cake conceiving how that comes about: if you’ve never tried seeing a firework unintentionally whizz below a parked car and experienced a second of pure fear, you’re one of the lucky ones. For the most part, the NFPA reckon that fireworks cause $43 million in property damage each year.

Since you are a property owner, you ought to be apprehensive about your Central tenant’s lighting fireworks on or near your rental homes. Considering that we can recognize why they might want to, the data alone is an effective motive to express to your tenants the reasons why fireworks are not allowed on your rental property. One method to induce them to abide by your desires may be to offer them information on firework safety and the risks involved.
