Ensuring A Worry-Free Fourth of July

Fourth of July Fireworks Elmira NYCelebrating America’s Independence

Fourth of July is just around the corner, which means it is time to celebrate America’s Independence. Whether you will be staying home for the holidays, road tripping to somewhere where fireworks are legal, or hosting a family barbecue, it is important that you enjoy the fun with a safety first mentality. Unfortunately, the holiday season is commonly associated with accidents and injury, so keep these important safety tips in mind for a worry-free Fourth of July.

4th of July Safety Tips:

  • Having a 4th of July BBQ at your place? If so, be sure to always supervise the grill and practice safe food handling. The last thing you want is for your guests to get food poisoning.
  • Attending a firework show with your family and friends? Be sure that everyone in your group has a fully charged cell phone and that you are all aware of an emergency meeting spot in case anyone gets separated from the group.
  • If fireworks are illegal where you live, do not make the mistake of igniting them anyway. There are strict firework laws and restrictions for a reason.
  • Road tripping for the 4th of July? Keep in mind that everyone is rushing to get to their vacation destination just as you are, so keep your eyes peeled for dangerous drivers and remain aware of your surroundings at all times.

Happy Fourth of July! Please celebrate safely and responsibly! Contact Perry & Carroll in Elmira for all of your New York insurance needs.
