Be Safe this 4th of July and Have a Blast

June 25, 2014 l Topics:Blogs l By K&N Sales Staff
There is nothing better on the 4th of July than looking up at the sky and seeing fireworks light up the night. What a great way to celebrate the anniversary of our nation’s independence. Please take advantage of this opportunity next week. However, before you do, keep a few safety tips in mind  if you are shooting off your own fireworks. K&N wants to see you in one piece after the holiday.   Don’t Play with Fireworks Fireworks can be fun to watch, but they aren’t toys. No one should ever play with any kind of firework. Even sparklers can get hot enough to melt gold, so be careful.   Only Use Legal Fireworks Legal fireworks are labeled, and directions for use are included on the label. A large amount of injuries are caused by illegal fireworks. Keep your home and your guests as safe as possible, by using only legal fireworks.   Keep Water Nearby It is a good idea to have plenty of water on hand when you light fireworks. A bucket is great. A hose that allow you keep refilling that bucket is even better. Make sure the hose reaches to the area where you are shooting. Saving a few seconds could make all the difference for in protecting your back yard.   Seek Medical Help Immediately if the Need Arises If you or someone at your party is injured by a firework, go to a doctor immediately. If an eye is injured, don’t try to flush it out with water or put ointment on it. If possible, cover the injured eye with the bottom of a paper cup and get to a medical care facility as quickly as possible.   Fireworks are meant to be enjoyed, but you’ll enjoy them much more knowing your family is safe. Take extra precautions this 4th of July, and your holiday will be a blast!

The 4th of July is just around the corner.  With this in mind, now is a great time to start finding the best to add red, white and blue to your home.  Get ready to celebrate our nation’s independence.


Start the Celebration at the Front Door


It makes sense to use the front door to set the tone for your whole home.  Welcome your guests with a patriotic wreath.  You can add your own flair to the creation, but basically you need two American flags attached to a standard wreath and you are ready to go.


Spell it Out


Don’t make people at your party guess.  Spell it out for them.  You can make a statement with large wooden letters from a local craft store.  Add some red, white and blue paint and there will be no mistake that your party is celebrating the U.S.A.!

After the holiday ends, here is a great idea for storing the decorations you want to use again next year.  You can save thousands on Wood Mode cabinets at K&N Sales during the Pick-Two Customer Savings Event.  Wood Mode Cabinets are a perfect fit for your home.  This sale runs through June 27.


Patriotism Can Quench Your Thirst


Wrap a small flag around a bottle of water and your guests will have a perfect treat to beat the summer heat.  Plastic and cloth flags are recommended over paper flags, which may not hold up to the bottle’s condensation.

A salute to you as you get your house ready to celebrate independence day.  Contact K&N Sales for any assistance you may need preparing your home for the holiday or for every day.
