Celebrate a Safe and Happy 4th of July with Tips from Kelly Insurance Group

Home with American Flag on Porch with Homeowners Insurance in Phoenixville, Skippack, Collegeville, Limerick, Royersford, and TrappeAs families in Collegeville, Limerick, Royersford, Skippack, Phoenixville, and surrounding areas gear up to celebrate Independence Day, Kelly Insurance Group is offering essential safety tips to ensure a fun and safe 4th of July holiday. From fireworks to barbecues, taking a few precautionary steps can help prevent accidents and injuries.

  • Fireworks Safety
    • Leave It to the Professionals: Attend public fireworks displays instead of setting off your own. Professional shows are safer and usually more spectacular.
    • Legal and Safe Use: If using fireworks at home, make sure they are legal in your area and follow the manufacturer’s instructions carefully.
    • Keep a Safe Distance: Light fireworks one at a time and maintain a safe distance after lighting. Never point or throw fireworks at another person.
    • Supervision is Key: Always supervise children around fireworks, sparklers, and glow sticks. Keep a bucket of water or a hose nearby in case of emergencies.
  • Grilling Safety
    • Check Your Equipment: Inspect your grill for leaks and cracks and ensure it’s in good working condition before use.
    • Location Matters: Place your grill at least 10 feet away from your house, garage, or any flammable materials. Never grill indoors or in enclosed areas.
    • Stay Attentive: Never leave the grill unattended while it’s in use. Keep a fire extinguisher nearby and know how to use it.
    • Proper Handling: Use long-handled tools to keep your hands and arms safe from the heat. Clean your grill regularly to prevent grease fires.
  • Sun and Heat Protection
    • Stay Hydrated: Drink plenty of water throughout the day, especially if you’re outside in the sun. Avoid excessive alcohol consumption, as it can lead to dehydration.
    • Use Sunscreen: Apply sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30, and reapply every two hours, or more often if swimming or sweating.
    • Wear Protective Clothing: Wear hats, sunglasses, and light, long-sleeved clothing to protect against sunburn.
    • Seek Shade: Take breaks in the shade or indoors to cool off and avoid heat exhaustion. “At Kelly Insurance, we want everyone to enjoy a fun and safe 4th of July,” says the agency.  “By following these simple tips, we can all help ensure that our celebrations are memorable for the right reasons.”
