The locally based California insurance agency, Best Buy Insurance, provides tips to help their community have a safe and happy summer! This season is supposed to be a time of relaxation and family fun, but unfortunately, there are still risks involved. It is important to know what precautions to take when a potential threat of a summer fire occurs—whether from fireworks, the grill, or a campfire. Two of the biggest holidays of the season are coming up, Memorial Day and the Fourth of July, and Best Buy Insurance encourages the community to celebrate safely.
According to the U.S. Fire Administration, there are many ways to put safety first when it comes to having fun this summer. Each year, an average of 9,000 Americans are injured by fireworks and almost 5,000 are injured by charcoal/wood-burning and propane grill fires. In 2009, 67 percent of firework-related injuries occurred between June 19 and July 19. Being aware of fire safety tips and following the necessary instructions will help everyone have an enjoyable vacation and create lasting family memories.
Tips for firework safety:
- Never light fireworks indoors or near dry grass.
- Always have a bucket of water and/or a fire extinguisher nearby.
- Do not wear loose clothing while using fireworks.
- Stand several feet away from lit fireworks. Do not stand over it to investigate faulty devices.
- Supervise children around fireworks at all times.
Barbecue safety tips, to help avoid accidents, include:
- Before using a grill, check the connection between the propane tank and the fuel line.
- Be careful when using lighter fluid.
- Supervise children around outdoor grills.
- Dispose of hot coals properly – let cool completely then store in a metal container.
