MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – The 4th of July is right around the corner and that means you'll hear a lot of fireworks.
Georgia Insurance and Fire Safety Commissioner Ralph Hudgens teamed up with the Macon-Bibb Fire Department to show you how to properly use and get rid of firework.
Hudgens is making stops in major cities across Georgia this week to remind everyone to stay safe and only use legal fireworks.
Hudgens says the best way to know if fireworks are legal is to buy them in Georgia.
He also warns, going across state lines to buy illegal ones can be dangerous.
Misuses of sparkers and firecrackers cause serious injuries.
