The countdown is on while residents across America await the 4th of July and the long weekend that comes along with it! Cities, townships, and counties have been eagerly preparing for the firework displays that will take place in just a few Fridays. ServiceMaster Absolute offers a few firework safety tips and reminders to help prevent the need for extensive fire restoration services in Chula Vista, CA.

The safest firework display is one that is conducted by professionals. These are the pyrotechnic displays that you see set off over water or large unoccupied area while you comfortably settle back to enjoy the show. Professionals are armed with the proper equipment and take every measure of safety to make sure their firework displays remain a fun and enjoyable event.

Consumer fireworks are the kind that you would buy from an independent retailer. These include items like sparklers, poppers, fountains, and so much more. In San Diego City and County, consumer fireworks are illegal, and for good reason. The amount of fire damage that occurs every year from consumer fireworks is on the rise. In 2011, fire damage occurred to a variety of structures across America, ranging from cars and houses, to yards and landscapes.

According to the National Fire Protection Agency, fireworks caused over 1,200 structural fires. Of every fire reported on Independence Day, about 2 of every 5 is a house fire that was the fault of consumer fireworks gone awry.

Other than fireworks, there are many reasons a household may experience the trauma of fire and smoke damage.
