Fire Works Safety
Monday, June 27, 2022

Fireworks are often used to mark special events and holidays. The only safe way to view fireworks is to attend a professional show. In 2018, burns accounted for 44% of injuries treated in emergency rooms seen in the month around July 4. Children ages 10–14 had the highest rate of fireworks injury, with more than one-third (36%) of the victims of fireworks injuries
under age 15. Sparklers account for roughly one-quarter of emergency room fireworks injuries.
A few ideas to get into the patriotic spirit, without fireworks:
1. Use glow sticks, they glow in the dark and are a safe alternative to a sparkler. Fun for all ages. 2. Loud and proud. Noisemakers are sure to make a statement. They can be found at local party supply stores or make your own.
3. Outdoor movie night. Set up a screen and projector. Don’t forget the bug spray!
4. Red, white, and blue silly string…fun for all ages.
5. Make a patriotic craft with the family.
6. Throw a birthday party for the USA, and don’t forget the cake.
Stay safe this week!
