    Be Safe Around Fireworks

    Few things say “Fourth of July” like watching a fireworks show. For many across the country it’s the traditional mark of the celebrated holiday. Americans love fireworks so much that in 2018, American Pyrotechnics Association recorded over $945 million worth of fireworks were purchased for consumer use. Trends of consumer and display firework purchases has increased every year since 1998.

    With that increasing number of purchased fireworks comes an increased rate of emergency department (ED) visits each year due to injuries. These rates then lead to changes in health care costs for the price of visits. For Wisconsin in 2019, the sum of total ED visit charges for fireworks-related injuries was just under $204,000. And, when looking at fireworks-related visits broken down into age groups, those aged 20 and younger account for almost 40 percent of all ED visits.
