July 4th is coming!!

July 4th will soon be among us and with that comes fireworks.  Most fireworks are lit and care is done to provide a safe result. However, there are those times when a accident causes great harm.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), in 2020 approximately 15,600 people were treated for firework related injuries.  

If you do choose to use legal fireworks, here are some safety tips from the National Security Council:

  • Never allow young children to handle fireworks, and older children should use them only under close adult supervision

  • Never use fireworks while impaired by drugs or alcohol

  • Anyone using fireworks or standing nearby should wear protective eyewear

  • Never hold lighted fireworks in your hands

  • Never light them indoors

  • Only use them away from people, houses and flammable material

  • Only light one device at a time and maintain a safe distance after lighting

  • Never ignite devices in a container

  • Do not try to re-light or handle malfunctioning fireworks

  • Soak both spent and unused fireworks in water for a few hours before discarding

  • Keep a bucket of water nearby to fully extinguish fireworks that don't go off or in case of fire

       

Please also keep in mind, your pets may not like fireworks!! Put them in the house with some soothing music and let them try to relax in there!!!
