Nothing says it’s the 4th of July quite like fireworks. From the beautiful bursts of color in the night sky, to the thrilling sound of celebration and cheers, it’s an entertaining way to remember a historic day in our history.
While fireworks can be a lot of fun, they can also bring about accidents and injury. Each day about 200 people go the emergency room with firework-related injuries during this time of year. Even seemingly innocent sparklers, which can heat up to 1,200 degrees, can cause severe burns. Stay safe during July 4th, and check out safety facts on fireworks and sparklers before you light them up.
