The attorneys and staff of Fellows Hymowitz Rice would like to wish a happy and safe Fourth of July to our friends, clients, and neighbors across the Hudson Valley. This weekend should include spending time with loved ones, enjoying the beautiful summer weather, and celebrating our Nation’s independence safely and responsibly.
Practicing proper safety is always of vital importance, especially at Fourth of July parties and celebrations. Every year, thousands of New York residents are seriously injured, or worse, during events that should be fun for the whole family.
At Fellows Hymowitz Rice, we would like to remind everyone to be especially careful during your Fourth of July celebration.
• Don’t Drink & Drive: If you are hosting a party where alcohol will be served, NEVER allow a guest to drive home after they have been drinking. If you will be attending a 4th of July party and plan on drinking alcohol, assign a designated driver or arrange for alternative transportation home.
• Be Safe Around All Fireworks: Celebrations involving fireworks are a staple of many Independence Day parties, but these devices can also cause severe injury if not handled properly. Practice proper fireworks safety this Fourth of July. You can view a helpful safety guide from the National Council on Fireworks Safety here.
• Pool & Water Safety: Safety around the water is a major concern, especially for young children. Every year, far too many New York residents are injured or drown in the water. Click here for a full guide to pool safety tips and statistics from Fellows Hymowitz Rice.
Happy 4th of July from Fellows Hymowitz Rice! Be safe this weekend & enjoy your parties and celebrations.
