One of the best highlights of summertime is the 4th of July celebrations that take place across the country. As we celebrate Independence Day, we are proud of our country’s independence and the birth of a nation we love so dearly. It’s no wonder this is one of the most exhilarating and entertaining celebrations of the year.
However, with all of the enjoyable celebrations and exciting fireworks that take place each year on July 4th, there runs a major risk of danger and injury. Our Corpus Christi personal injury lawyers of Sico, Hoelscher, Harris, & Braugh, LLP want to make sure we keep this holiday as safe and therefore as fun as possible for all!
Here are a few tips to keep you and your loved ones safe:
- Fireworks – Leave the fireworks to the professionals. Fireworks are unique to the 4th of July, as you aren’t likely to attend a barbeque, pool party, or outdoor event without these exciting yet rather dangerous devices taking center stage. The use of fireworks should be monitored by a professional. Otherwise, there is a major hazard of injury.
- Children – With all of the exciting commotion taking place during this holiday, it may be easy to get caught up in your own fun and forget to check on the children often. Taking turns supervising the children is vital to keeping a safe environment, especially when there are fireworks or sparklers around.
- Alcohol – As with any situation, consume alcohol responsibly!
- Review safe boating practices – Depending on how you choose to celebrate the 4th of July this year, you may need to review safe boating practices before embarking for the day. Lifejackets are essential, as is travelling at a slow and steady speed.
