Many of you have probably heard about the Lake Fire that has burned over 18,000 acres in California. Here at Aqua Sun Ozone we have seen the smoke coming from the Lake Fire for the past week. At one point the fire was less than 10 miles from an employee’s house. Fires are going to be inevitable during this drought so everyone is going to have to be extra cautious this Independence Day. Some cities in the Coachella Valley have banned fireworks, but those who are still able to purchase fireworks need to be extra careful.
Here are a few safety tips:
- Be sure to have a bucket of water and/or a hose ready for any fires.
- Also make sure there is no debris around that could catch on fire.
- Always, always, always make sure that no body part is directly over a firework.
- When a firework is used, douse it with water, or drop it into a bucket with water, to make sure the fire is completely out.
