Have a Happy, Healthy Fourth!

The fourth of July is a holiday packed with fun gatherings and events. Americans from coast to coast celebrate our nation’s birthday with picnics, parties, road trips and fireworks. Each Friday on our sister site, HealthcareNOW Radio, we run a post called The Friday Five listing five resources connected to a trending topic or item of interest. Last week’s Friday Five was dedicated to having a happy, healthy and safe July 4th celebration so we’ve included a segment of the post below. Be sure not to miss the other four tips from our July 4th Friday Five and from all of us here at Answers Media Network, we wish you a sparkling Fourth!

Fireworks – Celebrate Safely
The stars of the show on the fourth of July are always the fireworks. While it is best to leave it to the experts to create a safe and delightful display, many are tempted to try their hand at setting off a few loud crackers. If you are so inclined the first thing to do is check out the laws in your state. Once you know what is legal review these safety tips from the National Council on Fireworks Safety and let the show begin!
