The Minnesota Medical Association urges Minnesotans to leave the lighting of fireworks to the professionals when celebrating America’s independence this summer.
“Eye injuries. Hand wounds. We hear about these unfortunate and preventable injuries every year,” said MMA President David Agerter, MD. “If only Minnesotans would let the experts take care of the fireworks, we’d all be safer. Every summer, we hear awful stories about children and adults getting injured when fireworks go off unexpectedly.”
