It’s almost time to start planning your 4th of July celebrations! Whether that means fireworks, a barbecue, a trip to the beach, remember to enjoy your holiday safely.

However you plan to celebrate, keep these safety tips in mind:

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

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

Grilling: Don’t ignite charcoal with gasoline or lighter fluid. Use heat resistant tools and never lean over an open flame.

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

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


Did You Know? 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, keep your pet inside, drown out the fireworks noise, and make sure they are included in your Smart911 Safety Profile.
