Fireworks Safety
Email Print RSS Facebook Twitter

July 1, 2019

Summer is synonymous with barbecues, parades and fireworks. In 2017, eight people died and over 12,000 were injured badly enough to require medical treatment after fireworks-related incidents. Of these, 50% of the injuries were to children and young adults under age 20. Over two-thirds (67%) of injuries took place from June 16 to July 16. And while the majority of these incidents were due to amateurs attempting to use professional-grade, homemade or other illegal fireworks or explosives, an estimated 1,200 injuries were from less powerful devices like small firecrackers and sparklers. Sparklers burn at about 2,000 degrees – hot enough to melt some metals.

Leave fireworks to the professionals. Grab a blanket and a patch of lawn, kick back and let the experts handle the fireworks show!

As always, be aware of your surroundings. If you see something that just isn't right, say something.
