As the fourth of July moves closer, more and more fireworks are being shot off and the Illinois State Fire Marshal’s Office is urging all health care providers to report any firework injuries this summer. The data according to Fire Marshal Spokesperson JC Fultz goes a long way towards helping learn more about firework safety, and what can be done to prevent accidents in the future.
Fultz says 56 Healthcare facilities reported 126 injured people last year in Illinois. Fultz wants data to help get a more accurate picture.
