Fireworks Safety

To help you keep your family and friends safe over the holiday weekend, we're re-posting our blog about the best practices to follow when using fireworks.

Whether you’re the parent with a packet of sparklers for the kids or a dedicated enthusiast who stocks up on and enjoys some backyard fireworks every Fourth of July, it’s time for a reminder about how to stay safe when using fireworks.

Before heading into this weekend’s Independence Day festivities, please take a moment to review these helpful guidelines from the National Council on Fireworks Safety.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, “240 people on average go the emergency room every day with fireworks-related injuries in the month around the July 4th holiday.” They’ve put together a helpful infographic that shows why caution should always be at the forefront when enjoying fireworks, either in the backyard or at your local community display.

Keep it safe this Independence Day!

All of us at HSI wish you and your family a safe and enjoyable holiday.
