CPSC Fireworks Safety 2019 VNR



so we focus on fireworks around July but it's important to note CPSC year-round is concerned about fireworks we deal with what's coming into this country at the ports to make sure those are compliant we make sure what's out in the marketplace is compliant and most recently we're doing recalls and we do them on a regular basis make sure if a / a firework is overloaded we'll do a recall with the company get it away from consumers CPSC removes thousands and thousands of illegal fireworks from the marketplace just to keep the consumer safe it's a wonderful time of the year we celebrate our nation's birthday just a few reminders first and foremost make sure that fireworks are legal in your community beyond that make sure that you're not using professional fireworks leave professional fireworks to the professionals if your firework doesn't ignite don't try to reignite it make sure that you have a bucket of water or a hose nearby if you're going to do fireworks in your yard and beyond that most importantly don't give fireworks to kids I do want to mention sparklers because sparklers we think are safe they burn as hot as high as 2,000 degrees they can burn we see the highest rate of injuries and children under five because of sparklers be careful with sparklers we want consumers to celebrate safely but just be careful so I work here in Washington DC as a pediatric emergency medicine physician and what I do is I treat ill and injured children and injuries are actually the highest cause of death amongst children aged 1 and older so this is why we're here today to talk about firework related injury and safety because ideally rather than treating these injuries after the fact we want to get to them at the prevention level prevent them before they even happen these injuries we see are indeed from legally available consumer fireworks there's terminology out there safe and sane this applies to fireworks that don't create huge explosions or aren't airborne however I would argue that when it comes to children there really is no safe and sane fireworks we're seeing these injuries and children under five now children of those age they explore the environment about them by touch and feel so even if a nearby adult is the one holding the sparkler all it takes is that split-second for the toddler to reach out towards that shiny alluring flame and it's all over because at those high temperatures within two to three seconds that child can sustain what we call a full-thickness third-degree burn down to the bone and even though the majority of injuries we're talking about are burns again many full thickness down to the bone we do also see other injuries that can be even more severe I trauma where you have penetrating injuries so something actually goes into the eyeball that can lead to permanent vision loss we see in the worst case amputation of fingers of hands or even other parts of the body CBN astros Otto's Pardo's Millia CEO chose some preliminaries Janos Quentin una historia muy Syria cinco personas Marie Aaron poor incidentes ving Colorado's a dispositivo steep Ocoee te reo algunos de ellos dado so professional nuestro mensajes muy claro que de haar la Pira techni profession r en Manos de los profesionales Mazda Nova mil personas for entre tossin emergencia Solano pasado por lei Sione's VIN coladas a Phobos artificiales casi la mitad de las víctimas menores de vente a nose y las luces de Bangala las estrellas foreign la cosa principal delay Sione's na Na's pequeñas la mejor manera de montagne era la familia Segura es no haciendo Noah query endow a no hacer con dos a a los huevos artificiales illegals oh do so professional ikd Harl appear Oh Tecna professional en Manos de los profesionales es mejor assist earrin spectacular public co-producer fuegos artificiales a Segura's ascend legal sense soiree Tomy precautions nunca okay darlin ningún tipo de favorite official ani no incluyen doe luces de Bangala OS treatise siempre que tener agua en caso de emergencia nunca que tratar por ejemplo de volver a en cellar un fuego artificial que no se pren do definitive Ament a no IQs are focus artificiality legalese you you you you you you you you you you
