As the 4th of July approaches, we at Foreman Watson Holtrey, LLP would like to remind and encourage everyone to celebrate responsibly.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, “200 people on average go the emergency room every day with fireworks-related injuries in the month around the July 4th holiday?” If fireworks aren’t handled properly, they can cause burn and eye injuries, and much worse. It may also be illegal in your area. The best way to protect yourself and your family is not to use any fireworks at home. Why not go to a public firework display? Leave it to the professionals on the 4th of July. http://1.usa.gov/14sBVCD

Additionally, July 4th continues to be the deadliest holiday of the year. Please remember to designate a driver if you choose to consume alcoholic beverages.
