Reminder: June is Fireworks Safety Awareness Month With July 4 Coming Up
Reminder: June is Fireworks Safety Awareness Month With July 4 Coming Up

At Bankers Fidelity, we're concerned with more than just selling Medicare Supplement insurance options or Pennsylvania life insurance residents. We pride ourselves in helping our customers live healthy, safe, and happy lives in all facets. As part of these efforts, we believe in informing and raising awareness of the various safety and health campaigns currently ongoing from month to month. With the Fourth of July right around the corner, one of those such campaigns is June's Fireworks Safety Month.

Fireworks can be an incredibly fun and enjoyable experience for the whole family, but accidental or neglectful oversights can also have serious consequences. Pennsylvania residents may be more acutely aware of this than most considering it's one of the states in which various fireworks are legal for sale. Perhaps more so than most other things though, just because they're legal to buy doesn't mean they're without dangers.

Improper use or faulty products can cause serious, sometimes fatal harm to people using fireworks. Burns, cuts, dismembered limbs/appendages, and yes even death can and have happened to people using fireworks in the past. Unfortunately, there's the possibility of more occurring in just a couple weeks. That's why it's so important to follow proper protocol and safety procedures if you're going to partake in firework fun this holiday. If not, whether or not you have Pennsylvania life insurance might be the least of your worries.

According to a 2015 Gallup poll, Independence Day (Fourth of July) was one of the holidays when Americans were most likely to say they experienced happiness and enjoyment without a lot of stress and worry. Those feelings can change quickly though if something were to go wrong during a homemade attempt at a fireworks show, especially if you're one of the estimated 35 million people living without health insurance (CDC 2014).

If you're going to be involved, or near fireworks this holiday make sure you trust whoever is in control of them and they are being used in a correct and safe manner. Otherwise you may wind up using your Pennsylvania life insurance a lot sooner than you hoped.
