Every year, thousands of people look forward to seeing fireworks. Unfortunately, for many Savannah families, Independence Day celebrations have led to injuries as a result of sparks flying.
Numerous types of injuries can result from a fireworks display gone wrong. Burns are the most common, followed by blindness. It is also common for people to suffer bruises, cuts, bumps and even permanent scarring because of fireworks.

Many people think that sparklers are a safe type of firework. However, they are one of the leading causes of fireworks-related injuries. A favorite among parents and young children, sparklers can get up to 1800 degrees Fahrenheit, which can easily cause clothing to catch on fire.
Keep in mind that fireworks also cause more fires during the Fourth of July than any other time of the year. It is estimated that fires from fireworks on the Fourth of July cause approximately $25 million worth of damage each year.
Fireworks-related injuries can be prevented by taking the proper safety precautions. For example, it is a good idea to avoid buying fireworks to use at home. The best way to enjoy fireworks is at a public display that is put on by trained professionals.
