We are approaching our nation’s birthday, July 4th, and we hope everyone has a great day of celebration with friends and family. In 2019 over 7,800 people went to the emergency room as a result of fireworks related injuries. There were an estimated 15,770 reported fires started by fireworks. These fires resulted in an estimated eight reported deaths, and $38 million in direct property damage. This is why it is a good idea to have a free home insurance review and quote, call us today!
If you over-celebrate and do have a loss or damage, please call our office. It is very likely that the claim would be covered under your homeowner’s insurance policy.
General 4th of July safety
Be a safe swimmer. Water sports and fireworks are two of the biggest pastimes for Fourth of July celebrations, and these are both linked to numerous deaths and injuries each year. Never swim alone, and make sure that kids’ water play is adequately supervised at all times.
Be a safe boater. Never consume alcohol while driving a boat. Set water safety rules for your family and passengers.
Use alcohol responsibly. Alcohol and fireworks can be a hazardous and dangerous combination.
Use sun screen. At the start of summer skin is especially tender, so use a high SPF.
Keep alert for local weather conditions. Check to see if any warning signs or flags are posted.
Remember your pet. They are not used to all the fireworks, so keep them inside.
Grill safely. Before you use your grill, make sure all hoses are secure and leak-free. Never grill inside. Keep grill away for al structures.
