Health Notes: Stay safe on July 4

Email

The Minnesota Medical Association is urging residents to keep away from fireworks this Fourth of July. And that includes sparklers.

“Every year, too many children and adults are hurt by fireworks that go off unexpectedly,” said Cindy Firkins Smith, president of the association. “Young people suffer eye and hand injuries from fireworks each summer. It’s better to celebrate Independence Day by watching firework displays set off by experts.”
