Firework Season is Upon us

The Consumer Product Safety Commission said in their 2019 report that 180 people per day had to make a trip to the ER for injuries related to fireworks.  Usually fingers and hands, then legs, 34 percent were on the head (19 % in the eyes!). Sparklers, always a favorite, burn at 2000 degrees says the National Safety Council.  Adult supervision should always accompany the use of fireworks.

Fireworks go on sale June 24th through July 4th and then again December 20th through January 1st

Grills also carry a fire danger, as we who live near Fritch know.  Some tips for grill safety:

  • Keep it clean! Fat drippings are flammable
  • Don’t leave your grill unattended
  • Keep the grill away from the home, deck railings, and from under eaves and tree branches.
  • And most important in our area…be smart about grilling in the wind

The summer season should be a time to relax and enjoy the outdoors. Take precautions to prevent putting a damper on your summer months!
