Safe and Sane 4th of July!
Each July 4th, thousands of people, most often kids & teens, are injured while using consumer fireworks.
According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), in 2010 an estimated 15,500 reported fires were started by fireworks and 8,600 fireworks-related injuries were treated in U.S. hospital emergency rooms. 38% of the 8,600 emergency room fireworks injuries in 2010 were caused by Sparklers and novelties.
“Thousands of people are treated in U.S. emergency rooms each year because of incidents involving consumer fireworks and many times these injuries are extremely painful and require long-term recovery – using consumer fireworks is simply not worth the risk,” said James Shannon, president of NFPA. “We encourage families to enjoy public displays of fireworks conducted by trained professionals.”
In Marin County consumer fireworks are ILLEGAL. Enjoy a public display of fireworks conducted by trained professionals!
