Fire Safety All Year Long!
Fireworks, out door grilling, swimming pools and lightning can all be deadly. Do you appreciate the severity of what can happen during the summer-weather months?
- July is the peak month for grill fires and one-half the injuries are burns
- Fireworks start an average of 18,500 fire annually and cause $43 M in direct property losses
- Camp fires send thousands of persons to the emergency room each year for burn treatment
- The National Weather Service [NWS] reported in 2005 that more people die yearly in floods, 127 on average, than by lightning (73), tornadoes (65) or hurricanes (16)
