June is Fireworks Safety Month

Focus on Fireworks Safety as July 4th Approaches

June 1 through July 4 is National Fireworks Safety month. Annually, the UPMC Mercy Burn Center admits approximately five people with an amputation of a limb or loss of vision due to fireworks explosions.

To treat burn victims of all types, we offer burn injury care involving inpatient services, outpatient services, and a hydrotherapy treatment room. The Burn Center also hosts a number of programs and events to help with recovery and educate the community. Our “Leave it to the Professionals” Firework Safety program aims to raise awareness of how dangerous fireworks can be.
