How-To: Keep Your Household Safe and Sane on the Fourth

While the Fourth of July can offer a lot of fun with friends and family, there are also some obvious hazards, from barbecue burns to out-of-control sparklers. There are many ways to keep your house, and your loved ones, safe on the Fourth, with a little common sense and prep work. Here are my suggestions:

  • Keep a fire extinguisher close by. If you're using a barbecue or a fire pit, chances are good that you may need to use it.
  • Make sure you have a Summer first aid kit on hand, especially if you're outside or in the sun.
