Have Fun and Be Safe This Fourth of July
With the Fourth of July quickly approaching, young and old are excited for their local firework displays around South Carolina. NFPA reports that an average of 18,500 fires per year are caused by fireworks, including 1,300 structure fires, 300 vehicle fires, and 16,900 outside and miscellaneous fires. Property damage, injury and even death are caused by these fires each year. Many of the injuries occur to children and teens under the age of 15 years old. One idea to help promote safety for these young ones is to attend a firework show that’s put on by your local community.
Studies show that there is more property damage on the Fourth of July than any other day of the year. Check with your home owner’s insurance company on your coverage relating to fireworks. If you are involved in illegal fireworks you may not be covered. This could be a costly celebration!
