Happy 4th of July to our Wilson/Nashville Community!

The 4th of July is a time to celebrate our freedom, cook out with friends and family, and of course, enjoy a fireworks show in the evening. This holiday brings a lot of fun times and being educated and aware of potential dangers can help your holiday celebration be even better. Did you know that just last year 9,100 people were injured by fireworks and that fireworks caused 18,500 fires? Keep yourself and your home safe this year by keeping these tips in mind:

  • Never allow young children to handle fireworks
  • Never use fireworks while impaired
  • Never light them indoors
  • Only use them away from people, houses, and flammable materials
  • Soak used and unused fireworks in water for a few hours before discarding
  • Keep a bucket of water or a hose nearby to extinguish fireworks or in case of a fire

The safest way to enjoy fireworks is to leave it to the professionals. ABC News and the National Safety Council have articles with even more information to ensure your holiday is a safe one.
