Stay Free (from Danger!) this 4th of July. Part 1: Firework Safety.

4th of July is a wonderful time for family, friends, fun, freedom, and fireworks. But, outdoor grills, pyrotechnics, and unattended homes can also create dangerous situations. This week, we are sharing various safety tips to ensure your Independence Day is both fun and danger-free. Today’s blog post is all about fireworks.

Stay safe around fireworks
Fireworks and the 4th go hand in hand, but mishandling them can lead to serious injury. According to the National Fire Protection Association, each 4th of July, thousands of people are injured using consumer fireworks. Children and teens are most at risk.

To stay safe, leave the fireworks to the professionals, but if you plan to use consumer fireworks at home always:

• Keep water handy in case of an emergency

• Use fireworks outside and far from wooden objects

• Never allow children to hold fireworks

• Obey all local fireworks laws

Share this post on your social networks to help keep your family and friends free from danger, and stay tuned for Part 2 of our 4th of July safety guide tomorrow.
