Happy 4th of July...now stay safe!


The Fourth of July is a time to celebrate our Nation's Independence. It is also a time when families travel, go camping, or just take advantage of the day off from work.

My family will be celebrating by cleaning the house...boring... and then watching the firework show at the Salt Lake Country Club.

Whether you are travelling, grilling on the BBQ or setting off your own fireworks, make sure you stay safe with these tips from the American Red Cross.

Here are a few firework safety tips:

•Keep a supply of water close by as a precaution.

•Make sure the person lighting fireworks always wears eye protection.

•Light only one firework at a time and never attempt to relight a “dud."

•Never throw or point a firework toward people, animals, vehicles, structures or flammable materials.
