4th of july securityWith the long weekend coming up, we pulled together some common sense tip to have a safe 4th of July:

4th of July Security Tips:

  1. Always handle fireworks safely and have a fire extinguisher nearby. Emergency responders are busier on holidays and there may be a delay in response times, so keep a first aid kit and basic burn treatment supplies handy in case of medical emergency.
  2. If attending a large celebration or viewing fireworks in a crowded area, have an exit plan and a pre-determined meet-up location for your party if you need to leave unexpectedly.
  3. Consider COVID safety precautions if gathering with others or attending a public celebration.
  4. Check local news and traffic alerts for road closures in your area due to planned celebrations.
  5. Smoke from large fireworks displays can cause reduced visibility while driving; plan accordingly for alternate routes or have a backup plan to wait out the smoke.
  6. Don’t forget about your pets! They may be scared of the fireworks and loud noises, so ensure they are safe and secure before celebrating.


Have a happy and safe 4th with your family and friends.
