For most of us, the Fourth of July is a time to enjoy the company of family and friends, having fun and creating memories - whether at home or away.  But for some families, the holiday is a nightmare. Homes each year in Minnesota are damaged by wayward fireworks. Thousands of people are injured in accidents.

 

At Farmers Union Agency, we want your holiday to be happy, but also safe. So here are some tips to help you protect yourself and your property on the Fourth.

Protecting Your Home

  • Remember, fireworks can cause grass fires and other types of blazes as well. Make sure you light fireworks in a safe area, away from homes and buildings, as well as other combustible material. Keep a fire extinguisher nearby in case of emergency.
  • Look out for tree limbs or bushes that could catch fire. Trimming vegetation to keep it away from your home is a good idea anyway, but it could save you from a catastrophic fire on the Fourth of July.
  • If your gutters have accumulated leaves, pine needles or other flammable material, clean them before using fireworks near your home.
  • Be considerate of combat veterans and animals in your neighborhood who may be traumatized by loud noises such as fireworks.
  • Finally, if you won’t be home on the holiday, ask a neighbor to keep an eye on your house if others in your neighborhood will be using fireworks.

 

With some common sense and planning, the Fourth of July can be both safe and enjoyable for everyone. Whether you’re staying at home or heading to the lake, the staff of FUIA - and our Agents - hope you have a wonderful time celebrating our independence!
