Fireworks Without the “Fireworks” June 25, 2008

July 4th is next week.  Let’s make is a safe and uneventful 4th.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission approximately 10,000 people were injured badly enough to need emergency room care in 2007 because of fireworks.   About 64% of those fireworks-related injuries occurred around July 4th.

Hands (2,000), eyes (1,400) and legs (1,200) were the most injured.

I’ve had the fortune of being trained by the Bartolotta Fireworks company of Wisconsin.  A few years ago I was the guy setting off fireworks for municipal 4th of July fireworks.   Believe me, there are more than enough ways that someone can injured oneself and others.   Listen to your common sense when dealing with fireworks.

If you were injured because of a private or municipal fireworks mishap feel free to contact me.  I’ll give you my honest opinion on the situation.
