Dr. Loredo Talks Fireworks Safety on NBC 5 News

If your kids plan on using fireworks this Fourth of July, make sure to watch this video first. Dr. Loredo tells NBC 5 News that adult supervision is a must.

The question I get the most is, ‘Which fireworks are safe?’ There really isn’t a safe firework.”
One of Dr. Loredo’s patients, 14 year-old Paulix Cruz, spoke from experience. He suffered second degree burns on his hand from fireworks last year. “My little brother started screaming; he ran inside and told my mom and my family,” Cruz recalled. After receiving treatment at Renova Hand Center in Plano, his hands are back to normal.

The most alarming fact? Dr. Loredo says most of the firework injuries he treats are in kids ages four to 12. Those injuries are caused by seemingly harmless sparklers. “There really isn’t a safe firework,” he explained on the nightly news show.

Watch the video to learn how you can keep your kids safe from firework injuries.
