4th of JULY HOLIDAY
LOCAL SHERIFF OFFERS TIPS FOR
A SAFE JULY 4th WEEKEND
With the July 4th weekend approaching,
Cleveland County Sheriff Alan Norman asks
all citizens to join him in making this Fourth
of July holiday happy, enjoyable and safe for
Cleveland County citizens should re-
member that fireworks, as enjoyable as they
are to watch, can be dangerous and should
only be handled by professionals. According
to the U.S. Consumer Product and Safety
Commission, there are nearly 9,000 emer-
gency room-treated injuries associated with
fireworks a year. You can enjoy a safe Fourth
of July by following these safety tips:
— Never give fireworks to small children,
and always follow the instructions on the
— Keep a supply of water close-by as a pre-
— Make sure the person lighting fireworks al-
ways wears eye protection.
— Light only one firework at a time and never
attempt to relight “a dud.”
— Store fireworks in a cool, dry place away
from children and pets. :
— Never throw or point a firework toward
people, animals, vehicles, structures or flam-
— Stay at least 500 feet away from profes-
sional fireworks displays.
— Leave any area immediately where un-
trained amateurs are using fireworks.
Sheriff Norman also wants citizens to use
caution when swimming at a beach or at a
pool. “Sadly, most deaths from drowning
occur within a few feet of safety,” he said.
The best thing anyone can do to stay safe in
and around the water is to learn to swim. The
Red Cross has swimming courses for people
of any age and swimming ability. To find out
where lessons are offered, or to enroll in a
CPR/AED or first aid course, contact your
local Red Cross chapter.
At a swimming pool, take the following
— If no lifeguard is on duty, do not let chil-
dren swim unless accompanied by a respon-
sible adult who knows lifesaving techniques
and first aid. 3
— Post CPR instructions and directions to
call 9-1-1 or your local emergency number
in the pool area.
— Look around the pool area to be certain
lifesaving devices are readily available for
— Be sure covers are installed on all drains
of a swimming pool or in a wading pool. The
suction created by the pool’s circulating
pumps can be very dangerous unless it is re-
duced by covers.
— Take frequent breaks (about once an hour)
where everyone gets out of the water, drinks
water, reapplies sunscreen (SPF 15 or
higher) and rests.
If a child is missing, check the pool first.
Go to the edge of the pool and scan the en-
tire pool, bottom, and surface, as well as the
surrounding pool area.
