4th of July Firework Safety

With Fourth of July festivities in full swing its important to remember firework safety. Last night two people were injured in Iona Township due to fireworks. One of them was injured badly enought that he had to be airlifted to a hospital.10,000 Americans will be injured by fireworks during Fourth of July celebrations. 11 people died in fireworks-related incidents last year. Its important to know that most firework injuries are burns to the fingers but in the past three years firework related eye injuries have doubled. If your eye is injured do not touch or rub it. Do not attempt to remove anything from your eye and make sure that your not using water instead use eye solution. Seek medical attention immediately.
