[ARCHIVED] 4th of July Safety Tips

It’s almost time to start planning your 4th of July celebrations! Whether that means fireworks, barbecues, or a trip to the beach, be sure to enjoy your holiday safely by keeping these top safety tips in mind:

Protect your skin against the sun with SPF and reapply often.

Make sure everyone has proper skills to swim and keep an eye on young children and check floatation devices for leaks.

Don't ignite charcoal with gasoline or lighter fluid. Use heat resistant tools and never lean over an open flam.

Keep a safe distance from fireworks displays and remember sparklers remain hot enough to burn skin after they burn out.

Sign up and create a Safety Profile at to protect your family against any emergencies this summer.

More pets get lost on the 4th of July than any other day of the year.  According to national statistics, animal control officials across the country see a 30-60% increase in lost pets each year between July 4th and 6th. In fact, July 5th is one of the busiest days of the year for shelters.

On the 4th, play it safe and keep your pet inside. Also, be sure to include them in your Smart911 Safety Profile!
