Each year in the United States, there are roughly 9,000 accidents involving fireworks. Of those accidents, approximately 40 percent of them affect children who are under 15 years of age.
It is important to educate children on the dangers of fireworks, especially defective ones that fail to explode when intended. These flawed fireworks should be handled by safety officials in order to help prevent injuries.
Sparklers, one of the most popular types of fireworks, cause 27 percent of all firework-related injuries. The main hazard associated with these explosive devices is eye injuries. An estimated one out of every six fireworks accidents involves eye injuries and permanent vision loss, so it is important to take necessary precautions when handling these devices.
