Have a Happy & Safe Fourth of July
From our team at SERVPRO of Southwest Dallas to your friends and family, we want to wish you a happy Fourth of July…more importantly a safe Fourth. It is a time for cookouts, drinking, fireworks and kids playing. The combination of these things can lead to undesirable outcomes if caution is not taken. Below are some tips to keep in mind:
-Check on local laws to see if it is legal in your area to light fireworks.
-It is summer, find an area that is not overly dry and conducive to catching fire.
-Keep a buck of water around.
-Ideally, only adults light fireworks. We know this is not always the case so if children are involved make sure they are highly supervised and understand the dangers of the fireworks.
-Designate an adult to supervise that remains sober.
-Don’t point fireworks in the direction of others.
-Don’t keep them in your pocket or try to light them while contained on your person.
-If a firework does not light, do not try to reignite it.
-After all fireworks have been set off, let duds dwell for 10 minutes before pouring water on them.
We hope nothing happens and everyone safely enjoys the holiday. If something does happen, we are there to help in any way we can.
