Staying Safe During the 4th of July: Fireworks Safety Information & Startling Stats

 Every 4th of July, millions of Americans enjoy the countless fireworks displays that light up the night skies across the country. Unfortunately, there are also thousands of people who end up getting hospitalized each July due to firework-related injuries, ranging from minor burns to dismemberment, and even death.

We've got the scoop on some of the startling statistics about fireworks, and info on how you can stay safe this summer, and enjoy some great, professional displays right here on Long Island.
