According to Steve Sudderth, Fire Marshal for Watauga County, it isn’t the fire danger that has firefighters on edge on Independence Day.
More than fires- emergency workers see a lot of personal injuries today.
Adults should never allow children to handle fireworks, he says. Illegal fireworks cause the most injuries he says- even adults should avoid the illegal projectile fireworks.
Mistakes happen- and they could be detrimental to fingers and faces.
Be safe, and don’t hesitate to call rescue workers if the situation gets out of control, he says.
