Independence Day Safety 101

The Allan M. Block Insurance family would like to take a moment to wish you a happy Independence Day! In all the hustle and bustle of holiday fun, we often forget to slow down and think about what we can do to make for a safe 4th of July. Follow these guidelines for a lovely, and safe holiday:

  • Follow the law, do not use fireworks where prohibited by law.
  • Keep small children and pets away from the area where fireworks are being displayed.
  • Always keep a bucket of water, hose, or small spray bottle near in case something catches on fire. A fire extinguisher is even better if you have access to one.
  • Never try to relight a firework that appears to be a dud.
  • When disposing old fireworks, make sure they are completely out. Double check by tossing them into a bucket of water first.
  • Always keep an eye on your BBQ grill.
  • Only grill outdoors to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning.
  • If spending your holiday at the beach, never swim alone.
  • Never swim or handle fireworks under the influence of alcohol.
