? Tips for Independence Day Safety
Independence Day, while celebrating the birth of a nation, has been dubbed one of the deadliest holidays of the year. And the risks aren’t all in the fireworks. Car crashes, accidental drowning, and fireworks contribute to 41,200 injuries and 385 deaths over fourth of July weekend each year according to a report from the National Safety Council.
Use fireworks responsibly. Read the instructions, take the necessary precautions, and be a part of the solution, not a part of the problem. Don’t drink and drive, and know that alcohol and fireworks can be a deadly combination. Use fireworks outdoors only and away from buildings and structures that could catch fire. Have buckets of water or a hose on hand to extinguish fireworks after burning. Do not light fireworks near congested areas or areas with high traffic.
? Pet Safety During July 4th Celebrations ?
What’s fun and exciting for us may be terrifying to our pets. Don’t take your pet to a fireworks display. Sensitive pets should be kept in a safe interior room where you can buffer the noise as much as possible. Make sure your pets are wearing tags if they escape in a fear-induced frenzy.
Fourth of July is an opportunity for Americans to celebrate patriotism and honor the birth of our country. There are safe places throughout the holiday weekend where Las Vegas locals and visitors can take part in traditional and digital fireworks displays, pool parties, and barbecues.
Always put safety above celebration to avoid accidents, injury, and fatalities caused by improper use of or lack of respect for the dangers of fireworks. Be conscious of your pets and protect them as much as you can by keeping them safe, secure, away from danger, and properly tagged in case they flee in fear.
? Happy Birthday, America!
