Fireworks Safety Resources

July 4 is just around the corner, and many people celebrate this time of year with fireworks. However, consumer fireworks lead to fires and injuries each year; in 2011 fireworks caused 17,800 reported fires, and in 2012 approximately 8,700 people were treated for fireworks-related injuries. Help inform your community members about fireworks safety with resources from the National Fire Protection Association, the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the U.S. Fire Administration, and Safe Kids Worldwide.
