4th of July

sparklers

As a reminder, most consumer fireworks in Illinois and La Grange Park are illegal. The Consumer Product Safety Commission (SPSC) estimates an average of 250 people make a trip to the emergency room each day of the month with a firework-related injury around the holiday. What areas of the body get the most damage?

Fireworks of any kind are dangerous. Even sparklers, which many parents think are safe, burn at almost 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit, which can melt metal. When something goes awry with fireworks, they can cause serious burns, eye injuries, hand injuries and even death.
