The 4th of July is awesome.
It’s one of our favorite holidays. You know what’s not awesome? Injuries, fires, and homeowner’s insurance claims. And the the 4th of July generally gets plenty of those.
The days leading up to Independence Day last year, July 4, 2016, saw the highest number of fireworks-related injuries in over 15 years with over 10,000 people requiring a trip to the hospital, alongside multiple fatalities.
Fireworks are a really cool part of the 4th of July, but it might be one of those things that’s best left to the professionals. Your city, county, or state might even have laws against the home-use of some fireworks. Stay safe this summer, and have a great 4th of July!
