Happy 4th of July! But please stay safe on America’s birthday.
The July 4th holiday is already expected to attract many americans to the roads. In fact, the holiday is considered to be the deadliest part of the year. In the month around July 4th, an average of 230 people end up in emergency rooms each day with fireworks-related injuries. Serious misuse of fireworks devices, as well as the use of illegal explosives, account for a large proportion of these fireworks-related injuries.One of the dangers is that sometimes fireworks don’t go off as expected. Our suggestion is just not handle duds because you never know if there’s still enough of an ember burning somewhere that you can’t see that could ignite it when you’re actually going to touch it
