Dust off the grill and set up the tent as we prepare for JULY 4th. The popular summertime holiday is usually commemorated by cookouts and fireworks. According to the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission, nearly 15,600 people were treated in hospital emergency departments for fireworks injuries in 2020. Keep it safe this holiday by making sure fireworks are legal in your area, and only purchasing (igniting) fireworks that are labeled for consumer use. Do not allow young children to set off fireworks, including sparklers. A bucket of water or a garden hose should be kept handy, in case of fire or other mishaps. Never try to relight or handle malfunctioning fireworks. Lastly, never use fireworks while impaired by alcohol or drugs.
