It is also important to make sure everyone stays safe this 4th. Make sure to always supervise children while they are playing around water. If you are having your own backyard barbecue, never leave you lit grill unattended, or let small children or animals play around the grilling area. If you are putting on your own fireworks show, make sure to do so in an open area, away from any flammable materials, such as buildings or dry grass.
