We are eager to announce the launch of our consumer fireworks safety campaign, Celebrate Safely, PA!.
There is no doubt that there has been an increase across the Commonwealth in fireworks-related injury in recent years; just within the state of Pennsylvania, fireworks -related injuries have nearly doubled between 2019 and 2020. Consumer fireworks sales are also on the rise, reporting jumps up to 300% in 2020. While fireworks often accompany times of celebration, it is imperative to take all necessary safety measures and precautions. In an effort to keep Pennsylvanians safe and informed, we have partnered with several local and statewide collaborators such as Senator Pat Browne, State Fire Commissioner Bruce Trego, and the American Pyrotechnics Safety & Education Foundation to encourage the public to Celebrate Safely this Fourth of July and beyond.
The campaign aims to raise awareness about fireworks safety and to ultimately reduce fireworks-related injury, which is why we’ve developed both point-of-sale fireworks safety flyers as well as a robust media campaign. Stay tuned through our various channels, such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn as we share these materials throughout upcoming weeks. Together, we can Celebrate Safely, PA!
