Tips to a Safe & Successful 4th of July
During the 4th of July, family and friends gather around for food, festivities, and fun. However, dangers such as fireworks, sparklers, bonfires, and barbeques become a possibility during this time.
When building a bonfire, only use dry material and make sure that all debris is at least 10 feet away. To extinguish a fire, pour water on all embers until the hissing sounds stop. Remember to keep a fire extinguisher nearby when dealing with bonfires or grills, and always keep children and animals away from these areas.
While most kids love playing with fireworks, it is important to never toss or throw the fireworks. If dealing with fireworks, please consider the following safety tips and suggestions.
- Wear protective eye and hand gear
- Never carry fireworks in your pockets
- Always have a bucket of water nearby
- Keep unused fireworks in a closed box
- Make sure all spectators are 25 to 40 feet away
We hope these tips well help you have a wonderful, fun and safe holiday!
