Here’s a shocking statistic. According to the Firemen’s Association of the State of New York, there are more fires reported on July 4th than any other day of the year. Each year, thousands are injured using fireworks illegally. Be safe this holiday and leave the fireworks to the professionals. Don’t forget,  it’s illegal  in New York to own or use fireworks unless you’re a licensed professional. Have a safe and fun 4th of July and leave the fireworks for the experts who know what they’re doing. Don’t become another statistic.

Keep these tips from FASNY in mind this 4th of July.

***Leave the fireworks to licensed professionals. That’s your safest bet when fireworks are involved.

***When watching a professional fireworks display, obey the safety barriers set up. They’re there for a reason.

***Don’t get close to the site where the fireworks are fired off.

***Fireworks can frighten pets, so do them a favor and leave them at home.

***Don’t ever pick up or try to light used fireworks. You could get burned or seriously injured.

***Don’t shoot off your own fireworks. Again, someone could get hurt and you’ll be breaking the law.

Happy 4th of July!
