Posted on 06/25/2020
Each summer, thousands of people, mostly children and teens, are injured using consumer fireworks. Despite the dangers of fireworks, few people understand the associated risks such as devastating burns, other injuries, fires and even death.
According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), U.S. fire departments responded to an about 19,500 fires caused by fireworks in 2018, and U.S. hospital emergency rooms treated about 9,100 fireworks-related injuries, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission data.
Help reduce the damage caused by fireworks and ease the burden on first responders and emergency room workers on the frontlines of COVID-19. Leave fireworks to the professionals.
