Happy Independence Day 🇺🇸
The celebration of our nation’s independence is synonymous with grilling with the family, relaxing with friends, and participating in firework displays. Unfortunately, all of these activities can be dangerous if not done properly. Additionally, while great strides have been made to combat COVID-19 infections, we continue to see cases of this disease decline only to rise again with new and different variants. The Headquarters Department of the Army Safety and Occupational Health Office encourages you to follow the COVID-19 safety protocols plus the additional safety tips below to enhance your enjoyment of the July 4th holiday.
* If fireworks are not legal in your area, do not use them.
* As a precaution, keep a supply of water close by.
* Never give fireworks to small children.
* Always follow the instructions on the packaging.
* Never relight fireworks that have not fully functioned.
* Light one firework at a time.
* Make sure the person lighting fireworks always wears eye protection.
* Store fireworks in a cool, dry place away from children and pets.
* Never throw or point a firework toward people, animals, vehicles, structures or flammable materials.
* Where possible, attend public fireworks shows presented by professionals.
* Stay at least 500 feet from professional firework displays.
* Always use sparklers under adult supervision. Sparklers burn at temperatures of approximately 2,000 degrees (hot enough to burn some metals).
* Never hold a child while using sparklers.
* Always stand at least six feet from another individual using a sparkler.
* Never throw sparklers.
* Always place used sparklers in a bucket of water. Sparkler wire remains hot long after the flame is out.
* Monitor local weather conditions and pay attention to warning signs or flags that are posted.
* Watch young children and inexperienced swimmers and ensure they wear approved life jackets when swimming.
* If caught in a rip current, swim parallel to the shore until out of the current.
* Wear sunscreen with at least SPF 15 and reapply frequently.
* Wear sunglasses to protect your eyes.
* Adhere to lifeguard instructions at all times.
* Never swim alone.
* Use long-handled tools made specifically for grilling.
* Supervise the grill whenever it is in use.
* Keep the grill out in the open and away from the house, tree branches, or anything that could ignite.
* Never grill indoors.
* Never add lighter fluid to charcoal that has already been ignited.
* Keep children and pets away from the grill.
* Make sure all passengers wear seat belts at all times.
* Prepare your vehicle for long-distance travel. Check your wipers and fluids. Have your radiator and cooling system serviced.
* Make sure the driver is well-rested before a long trip and takes frequent breaks throughout the trip.
* Plan ahead. Before you get on a highway, know your exit by name and number, and watch the signs as you near the off-ramp. Drivers making unexpected lane changes to exit often cause accidents.
* Avoid distractions such as cell phones. Never text and drive.
* Do not cut in front of large trucks. Trucks are heavier and take longer to make a complete stop.
* Be aware of the truck driver’s blind spots. If you can't see the truck driver in his or her mirrors, then the truck driver can't see you.
* Never drink and drive.
* Designate a non-drinking driver or plan for alternative transportation, such as a taxi, if you plan to drink.
* To check your boat, take advantage of a free vessel safety check from the U.S. Coast Guard.
* Educate and familiarize yourself with the boating safety rules of operation, and be prepared for every circumstance that might arise.
* Learn how to swim, if you will be in and around the water. Local organizations, such as the American Red Cross and others, offer training for all ages and abilities. Check to see what classes are offered in your area.
* Practice boating safety at all times by saving the alcohol for later. The probability of being involved in a boating accident doubles when alcohol is involved.
* Whether you choose to inform a family member or staff at your local marina, always be sure to let someone else know your float plan.
* Make Proper Use of Lifejackets. A majority of drowning victims are the result of boaters not wearing their lifejackets.
* Always check local weather conditions before departure; TV and radio forecasts can be a good source of information. If you notice darkening clouds, volatile and rough changing winds or sudden drops in temperature, play it safe by getting off the water.
* Make sure more than one person on board is familiar with all aspects of your boat’s handling, operations, and general boating safety.
Safety First and Have a Happy Fourth of July! 🎆🇺🇸
