Independence Day is Approaching!

6/25/2021 (Permalink)

As Independence Day approaches, we here at SERVPRO, would like to share a few facts according to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). https://www.nfpa.org/-/media/Files/Public-Education/Resources/Safety-tip-sheets/FireworksSafetyTips.pdf

More than 19,500 reported fires are started by fireworks every year.

Burns account for 44% of the 9,100 injuries treated in emergency rooms seen in the month around July 4th.

Half of the fireworks injuries seen at emergency rooms were extremities: hand, finger, or leg. One-third were to the eye or other parts of the head.

Children ages 10–14 had the highest rate of fireworks injury, with more than one-third (36%) of the victims of fireworks injuries under age 15.

Sparklers account for roughly one-quarter of emergency room fireworks injuries.

1,900 structure fires, 500 vehicle fires, and 17,100 outside and other fires

$105 million in direct property damage.

Bottom line is they suggest leaving the firework show to a professional, keep you, your family, pets, and property safe!
