AWESOME....Thank you for such an amazing Raffle. What a great way to celebrate the holiday.
In honor of the 4th of July weekend, the Community Fire Company of Perryville Maryland Inc. would like to give a few safety tips and reminders for the weekend, and the summer in general.
As we all know, the 4th of July is a time to celebrate our country and spend time with friends and family. Often these activities include grilling, swimming, and the use of fireworks for fun or display. We would like to ensure the safety of our community members, whether human or furry, and to do this we would like to provide these tips.
- Maryland law requires all pools to have a fence and locking device around them, but this does not guarantee the safety of children. Please be mindful this holiday weekend to close gates behind you, keep an eye on any children who are not able to swim on their own, and please ensure that when holding a pool party someone is mindful of the location of all individuals and animals attending. Even someone who is able to swim may come into harm from diving into a pool, becoming intoxicated before entering the water, or losing consciousness for any reason. When a pool is crowded it is also easy to lose track of individuals or to point out someone in distress.
- When grilling out please be mindful that grills do provide a flame for the food to cook on. Due to this you will want to keep the grill away from any object that may catch fire or melt. This includes house siding, paper and plastic waste, roofing and other wooden structures. When operating a grill please also be mindful when lighting the grill and coming in contact with it for cooking purposes. We understand that fireworks and flames can be exciting but spending a holiday in the hospital with burns is not.
- When using fireworks please be mindful of proper use and disposal. Please also avoid using fireworks in areas such as neighborhoods and boat launches. One firework that is misfired could cause burns to the operator, woodland or structure fires from landing on a roof or dock, and harm to the users hearing. Please also keep in mind the neighbors and animals that may be harmed by use of fireworks. The noises can be very stressful to individuals and animals effected by loud noises such as gunfire and thunder. Please also keep in mind that all non-ground based fireworks are illegal in the state of Maryland.
We hope that you all enjoy a safe and fun holiday weekend, and as always we are here for our community if you need us. ... See MoreSee Less
