This year’s July 4th holiday may look different from most, with many people celebrating from home due to social distancing restrictions still in place to help stop the spread of COVID-19. All too often, however, Independence Day backyard celebrations can end up with a trip to the hospital for fireworks-related injuries.
Did you know sparklers burn at 1200 degrees Fahrenheit? Fireworks can cause death and injury, including burns, cuts, bruises, and foreign objects in your eyes. So this Fourth of July, never allow young children to play with or ignite fireworks. Always have an adult supervise fireworks activities. Avoid buying fireworks packaged in brown paper, which often means they were made for professional displays and could be dangerous for consumers. Make sure you and your family watch fireworks displays from a safe distance. And finally, call 911 immediately if someone is injured from fireworks.
You can find more tips for a safe and healthy summer on the CDC website. Happy 4th of July!
