Next month, Americans across the country will once again participate in the tradition of celebrating Independence Day with fireworks. However, each year roughly 10,000 people, mostly children and teens, are injured from consumer fireworks. These accidents vary from minor to serious burns and injuries! On top of that, children 5 to 14 years of age are among the highest at risk.
If you plan to participate in the tradition of lighting fireworks on Independence Day, there are some important safety tips to keep in mind for the protection of you and your children:
In the event of a firework burn, immediately apply moist cool dressing (no ice) and/or antibiotic ointment. Wrap the burn loosely and seek immediate professional care at an urgent care or emergency room.
Every city, county, and state have laws to ensure the safe use of consumer fireworks. Become familiar with your local and state laws for legal and safe Fourth of July fireworks in your community.
The safest way to enjoy fireworks would be to attend a public display conducted by trained professionals in your area. Let’s all enjoy a safe and happy Fourth of July this year!!
