Since the launch angle of the hand-held discharge cannot be precisely controlled, even if it is launched horizontally, the spit beads have a high rate of fire and a long range, and the burning temperature of the colored beads exceeds 1000°C . Unburned colored beads can easily cause a fire after falling to the ground, and can also injure surrounding personnel.
On January 25, the National Fire and Rescue Bureau released a video of the “Gatling” fireworks display experiment on its official Weibo. In the video, the experimenters hold the “Gatling” fireworks. After they are lit, the spray range of the fireworks is close to 40 meters. When the fireworks splash on the combustible objects, the objects are instantly ignited, and the flames are obvious. The experimenters also found that during the hand-held discharge process, a large amount of fireworks residue will splash down, which may cause the risk of splashing into the eyes; in addition, after the fireworks are set off, the temperature of the ignition port is still above 240 degrees Celsius, and there is a risk of burns.
The experimenters pointed out that the fireworks are actually marked “no hand-holding”, and those who set off the fireworks should follow the instructions.
In addition, firefighters reminded that when purchasing fireworks, they must be purchased on platforms with sales permits. When setting off fireworks, be sure to choose an open outdoor area, away from combustible materials, and minors must be accompanied by adults when setting off.

When buying fireworks, choose a qualified business point; read the instructions carefully, and set them off in a spacious and safe outdoor venue; if there is an abnormal situation such as flameout during the set-off process, do not approach immediately, and do not re-ignite; children should be under the supervision of adults. Fireworks are set off under supervision.
