The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission a federally-funded organization conducted a special survey last year from June 17- July 17 and found that 65 percent of all fireworks injuries occurred within the month of the July 4th holiday.
The report also found that four people were killed
For thousands of consumers, last years 4th of July celebration ended with a visit to the emergency room, CPSC Chairman Inez Tenenbaum said in a press release. CPSC wants you to understand the risks with legal and illegal fireworks, in order to prevent an injury, or worse, during this holiday.

Really, what did this cost me?
water is wet too...
I also heard that more people drowned while swimming as opposed to jogging. We need the government to fund a study to figure out why this is.
“within the month of the July 4th holiday”
These geniuses didn’t tell us what month the July 4th holiday is in? You would have thought they would have included that part.
Paging Captain Obvious!!!
I bet a similar number of Christmas Tree fires occur just before and after December 25th also.
We will have to wait until that study concludes, however.
I recently discovered that nail guns HURT!!
and venereal disease is usually passed on during sex...
In another study, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission concluded that the vast majority of Christmas tree fires occur in late December.
I wonder if a study would show that incidents of heat prostration increase in the summer months.
“... water is wet”
Ice is cold. (giggle, giggle)
....and most turkey-carving accidents happen around Thanksgiving.
Oh, my God.....
.....and heart attacks from shoveling snow in the winter
Quick! Do a study to find out what happens most often during Ground Hog Day!
Wonderful. Can I get a grant to study the question world-wide? I hypothesize there will be a spike in fireworks related injuries near 5 November, annually in Commonwealth countries.
Federally-Funded Study Finds Barbeque Fire Injuries Occur Mostly Outdoors

Leftards just can’t call it “Independence Day” any more.
“Federally-Funded Study Finds Firework Injuries Occur Most Around 4th of July”
Holy crap! I had no earthly idea!! So shocking!! I’m so happy we have the federal government, we wouldn’t have been able to get out of the caves without them....
“CHARLOTTE (CBS Charlotte) File this study under obvious.
Wrong, Spanky. File this under “Political Payoff”.
exactly.. I suggest we all stop paying taxes and live at club fed..
Thanks. I needed a really healthy laugh today. That picture did it.
Since most fireworks deaths occur during the warm month of July, it is projected that fireworks deaths will skyrocket as global warming continues to superheat the planet. More studies are needed to understand the connection between AGW and fireworks deaths.
LOL! We have nothing but fools and idiots in our govt. Anything and everything they can think of to destroy this countries wealth they will do.
I’m betting more people drown in summer.
More people get frost bite in winter...
Yea, just like the December 25th holiday!
Taking notes here, Boss!
Also, make sure fellow workers in your vicinity have their fingers OFF the trigger of their nailgun when your leg, or other parts, may come into contact with the muzzle. I was lucky, the nail only went in about a quarter inch.
And let’s see, most Christmas tree fires happen in December?
