How to stay safe during Fourth of July traditions

There’s no bigger fourth of July tradition than fireworks, but they’re also extremely dangerous.

Thousands of people, most often kids and teens, are injured each year using fireworks. And believe it or not sparklers are the most likely to cause injuries. They can reach temperatures high enough to cause third-degree burns. That’s why doctors recommend that only adults handle fireworks and wear protective eye wear.

Make sure to always dispose of fireworks by soaking them in water before throwing them away.
