Fourth of July is a time of fun filled with family, cookouts, and fireworks. From all of us at Wheelers Insurance, to you and your families, we hope you have a safe and fun time celebrating. Here are 10 tips to make sure you are protecting yourselves and assets this holiday weekend:

1.) Make sure you have water nearby in case fireworks or grilling take a turn for the worst.

2.) Keep your animals inside when doing fireworks if they are easily spooked, and away from the grill at all time. It’s important to keep the furbabies safe and out of an anxious situation.

3.) Keep a close eye on children at all times when near fireworks or sparklers.

4.) Only light one firework at a time and make sure all fireworks are

5.) Never leave a grill unattended.

6.) Do not relight faulty fireworks.

7.) Never light fireworks close to your home or any fixtures.

8.) Keep life preservers in a boat for all those who are riding along.

9.) Keep your grill at least 3 feet away from the side of your home.

10.) Always pre-check your grill and grill hose for leaks or breaks before lighting.
