Have a Safe and Happy Fourth of July!

Here’s hoping the weather holds out for festivities and fireworks at the Milton Riverwalk! If you’re planning your own fireworks display, consider following these important safety tips from http://safekids.org/.
* Be sure you’re not wearing loose clothing if you’re lighting fireworks.
* Never light fireworks near dry grass.
* Always have a bucket of water and/or fire extinguisher nearby. Know how to operate the extinguisher.
* Stand several feet away from lit fireworks. If you think you have a dud, put it out and dispose of it when you’re done.
* If someone gets an eye injury, don’t touch or rub it. This may cause more damage. Seek medical attention.
