When misused • FIREWORKS CAN CAUSE • INJURIES • Severe burns • amputations • blindness • and even DEATH • during a 4th of July Celebration •

Everyone enjoys fireworks, particularly in the festive Fourth of July season. But some devices can be dangerous. The National Council on Fireworks Safety recommends that you only buy consumer fireworks from a licensed store or stand. Never buy firework devices from an individual’s house, or out of someone’s car. Such fireworks are likely to be illegal explosives that can seriously injure you.

Fireworks-related injuries are most common on and around holidays associated with fireworks celebrations, especially July 4th and New Year’s Eve. Thousands of people each year are treated in emergency rooms or injuries sustained from fireworks.
