Celebrate holiday safely
So, how do we ensure everyone’s safety where fireworks are concerned this Fourth of July?
Jerry Lewis, chief public education officer for the Ruston Fire Department, said everyone can have a safe holiday by keeping out of the line of fire, storing fireworks in a safe place and being prepared if an accident should occur.
“One of the biggest problems we have with kids is, of course, burn accidents,” Lewis said.
“The kids should always be assisted by an adult or a responsible person anytime they are handling fireworks.”
