While snuggling up and watching fireworks seems like a fairly safe idea, the National Safety Council has claimed the Fourth of July to be “the most dangerous holiday of the year." If you weren't worried enough about your children playing with fireworks or your butane tank blowing up your house, don't forget to add extra worry for your cars and pets.

The fourth makes for a dangerous drive for commuters because of the increase in traffic, drunk drivers and speeding to get to the next barbeque on time. As always, remember the basic driving necessities and don't drink and drive. There will be an increase in DUI check points, as well as law enforcement on the road. Don't waste yours or someone else's life over an irresponsible decision.
The chaos, loud noises and large groups of people cause your pets to become intimated and extra cautious. Dogs and cats will run away to escape the loud banging boom of fireworks, thinking quick in a state of panic. Know where your pets are at all time if you are home and if know you will be leaving, provide a safe calming area for your pet. For example, if you usually let your dog sleep with you in your bed, close your bedroom door and leave your dog in there with the lights and television on. Sounds silly, right? The television noise will help calm your dog while drowning the scary firework booms.

Remember, have a fun Fourth of July, but remember to keep safe!
