The Fourth of July weekend is upon us and did you know that thousands of Americans spend part of their Fourth in the emergency room because of eye related injuries caused by fireworks? Watching the Diamond Bar 4th of July Blast at DBHS will help you avoid that, but don’t tell this to JPP, he knows all too well the dangers of these pyrotechnics. These fun shows of display can be exciting when handled by trained professionals, but if you are going to light these small pieces of dynamite for yourself, please exercise caution while doing it.
The majority of the injuries were reported from bystanders, and 40% of those were actually children under the age of 15. Firework related eye injuries can cause blindness and surprise, surprise, July is Firework Safety Month (who comes up with these things). If you are going to light your own fireworks and explore that adventurous side please be safe this holiday season! We want to see you healthy again for your next visit! Happy 4th everyone.
