June Tips of the Month: Fireworks Safety

Fourth of July is just around the corner with its parades, cookouts and fireworks. Whether it's a community event or a private display in your own backyard, fireworks can be dangerous. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission fireworks devices were involved in an estimated 7,000 injuries treated in U.S. hospital emergency departments during 2008. Children under the age of 15 accounted for about half of the firework related  injuries.  Between June 20, 2008 - July 20, 2008, there were 900 injuries associated with firecrackers, 800 associated with sparklers and 300 associated with rockets. 

Body parts most often injured by fireworks include hands, face, head and eyes. Injuries include burns, lacerations, and foreign bodies.
