Be Safe on the Fourth of July

The Fourth of July is time for celebrating our country’s independence. Family and friends will gather for cookouts and to enjoy fireworks. There are some steps you can take to keep your celebration safe. Let’s take a look at a few.

If you are traveling:

  • Use your seat belts and insist your passengers do the same.

  • Make sure your car is road ready. Check the tires, tire pressure, fluids, wipers and make sure all your lights are functioning properly.

  • Don’t drink and drive.

  • Drive defensively, knowing the roads will be crowded.

When picnicking or cooking out:

  • Keep cold foods cold.

  • Cook meats properly.

  • Clean your grill and utensils.

  • Use long-handled utensils when cooking out.

When boating:

  • Follow watercraft safety rules.

  • Have personal flotation devices for everyone.

  • Don’t drink alcohol while boating.

You will also want to use sunscreen, take along bug spray, and leave the fireworks to the professionals. Have a fun but safe Fourth of July from all of us at Massive Insurance.
