Fireworks are a tradition for many families around the Fourth of July, but this year, in the absence of public displays, we're encouraging our community to find safe and creative alternatives to celebrate the holiday. Even consumer fireworks are dangerous and unpredictable. And, depending on where you live, they could be illegal.
Every year, our crews fight fires caused by fireworks and treat patients who are injured while celebrating. Emergency responders are already working to protect the public during the COVID-19 pandemic. You can show your support for our crews and the healthcare community by avoiding preventable incidents.
