PetrolinkUSA’s Top 4 Safety Tips for a Safe 4th of July:
- Don’t set off any fireworks inside refineries
- Safety glasses are always a good idea, even at home where your family will call you a nerd for wearing them. Better to be a nerd with both eyes than a cool guy with one eye.
- Make sure you aren’t holding any animals when the fireworks go off. You could lose a limb. Also, real fact, more pets run away on the 4th of July than any other day. So keep those adorable furry family members safe inside, no matter how dejected they look.
- The person most excited about setting off the fireworks is the one person you should not put in charge of setting off the fireworks. That person will set your house on fire. Medium excited and responsible with a lighter is a better choice.
In all seriousness, we hope you have a blast on the Fourth of July while staying safe! For real safety tips and some shocking injury facts, check out this resource.
