The time of year has come to celebrate our country’s birth! Exactly 238 years ago the members of the Continental Congress gathered around the Declaration of Independence and made history! We all love to celebrate this momentous occasion, however it is vital to remember 4th of July safety guidelines amidst all of the fun. Here are some things to keep in mind as you join your family and friends to commemorate the independence of America:
- Use fireworks safely. Keep explosives away from children and pets, and make sure you always have a bucket of water on hand in the case of a small fire. To limit your risk, attend a fourth of July fireworks show that is put on by professionals.
- Please drink responsibly. Fireworks and alcohol can be a bad idea. Always make sure you have a designated driver, and stay away from the pool if you have been consuming alcohol.
- Keep your food covered when serving outdoors. This can decrease your risk for a food related illness.
- Apply sunscreen thoroughly and constantly.
- Stay hydrated!
