WASHINGTON, D.C. - In the wake of the events of September 11th, many Americans are planning to display their patriotism on the Fourth of July in a big way. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) used a press conference on the National Mall to urge consumers to celebrate safely by not purchasing illegal fireworks and by adhering to CPSC safety tips on using legal ones. The Commission demonstrated the explosive force of illegal fireworks and showed the hazards of legal fireworks and sparklers, when used by young children or when used in an unsafe manner. Commission data reveal the result can be a severe burn, blinding, amputation, and even death.

"We all want to spend our Fourth of July with family and friends, not in the emergency room," Acting Chairman Thomas Moore told reporters. "Never buy illegal fireworks such as M-80s or purchase professional, display fireworks, sometimes sold illegally to consumers. Also, too many people are injured by firecrackers placed in metal or glass containers or thrown at another person."
