Summer Safety Tips
As summer heats up and we enjoy summer vacations, camping, family reunions, picnics and the fourth of July, keep safety in mind and incorporate it every chance you get. We want you to enjoy the summer; healthy and safe. Here are some tips to remember:
Summer is synonymous with barbecues, parades and fireworks displays. But along with all the festivities are plenty of visits to emergency rooms – especially during July.
In 2017, at least eight people died and about 12,900 were injured badly enough to require medical treatment after fireworks-related incidents, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. And while the majority of these incidents were due to amateurs attempting to use professional-grade, homemade or other illegal fireworks or explosives, thousands were from less powerful devices like small firecrackers and sparklers.
More fires are reported on July 4 than any other day of the year, according to the National Fire Protection Association. Each year, fireworks cause on average 1,300 structure fires, 300 vehicle fires and nearly 17,000 other fires resulting in thousands of injuries.
We advise everyone to stay away from all consumer fireworks and to only enjoy fireworks at a public display conducted by professionals. As we all know fireworks are legal in many areas of the state but since being made legal have caused serious fires and injuries to both children and adults.
Your local firefighters and EMS first responders what you to enjoy summer and if you’re safe they will be safe also.
