Stay safe on July 4

-A A +A

 

It’s time for Fourth of July celebrations – fireworks, a backyard barbecue, maybe a family reunion. Whatever people have planned, the American Red Cross wants them to enjoy their holiday and has steps they can follow to be safe.

“We want everyone to have a great holiday, and a safe one,” said Rahim Balsara, CEO of The American Red Cross in New Mexico. “Whether the weekend will involve fireworks, grilling or visiting family, we have safety tips everyone can follow.” 

FIREWORKS SAFETY

 The safest way to enjoy fireworks is to attend a public fireworks show put on by professionals. Stay at least 500 feet away from the show. Many states outlaw most fireworks. If someone is setting fireworks off at home, they should follow these safety steps:

Leave any area immediately where untrained amateurs are using fireworks. 

In New Mexico fireworks are banned from most state and federal lands including National Forests.

GRILLING SAFETY

 Every year people in this country are injured while using backyard charcoal or gas grills. Follow these steps to safely cook up treats for the backyard barbecue:

Always supervise a barbecue grill when in use. 

Never grill indoors – not in your house, camper, tent, or any enclosed area.
