Fireworks safety for children

Posted under Personal Injury

Many people celebrate the Fourth of July holiday with fireworks, and it is important to understand the risks associated with these explosive devices before allowing children to handle them.

Children are at the highest risk for sustaining a firework-related injury. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, or CPSC, 40 percent of firework-related injuries affect children younger than the age of 15.

Young children should not be allowed near fireworks while celebrating the July 4th holiday. Additionally, defective fireworks that fail to explode properly should not be handled by anyone, and once they are spotted, they should be reported to a local police department or fire department.
