Celebrate Independence Day Safely

Many of us celebrate July 4th the same way ... BBQ's with family, watching the fireworks and going to parades. Depending upon your plans, a little planning ahead can keep it safe for everyone.

  • If you're using the BBQ make sure little kids and pets don't run around the grill.
  • Headed to a parade or ceremony? Take a picture of everyone in a group on your digital camera or phone when you first arrive. If anyone, especially a child, gets separated from the group you will have a picture to share and will remember what they were wearing.
  • Choose a spot to watch the fireworks that you're not too close so young children will not be as frightened by the noise.
  • Using fireworks or planning an outdoor fire? Make sure to have a garden hose or bucket of water handy for emergencies.
