July is a great time of year to spend outdoors. It's also a hot time of year for both fireworks and water fun. Whether it's lakes, pools, or rivers, safety should always be at the top of your list of things to do this summer during Water Safety Month.                                                                                             

And since July is also Fireworks Safety Month it's a great reminder that you can celebrate the red, white, and blue while reducing risks of serious injury. This is true even for sparklers and small firecrackers. Half of all fireworks injuries are to people under the age of 20. Be safe and have a great summer!
