Hospitals expecting fireworks injuries

MUSKEGON, Mich. (WZZM)-Emergency room workers expect to treat a lot of injuries caused by fireworks this week.

All fireworks have the potential to cause serious burns. Doctors say even very quick contact with a lit firework can cause damage.

"Mostly all fireworks burns should be looked at by a medical professional, just because if it is not cared for correctly initially, there could be infection, delayed wound healing and even problems with mobility if it is over a joint," explained D.O. Ryan Offman, with Mercy Health Partners.

Doctors say the most common injuries are to the hands and face. Fireworks that appear to be duds are often the cause of the most damaging burns, because they can go off just as people bend over to pick them up.

Campgrounds, parks ban holiday fireworks

MUSKEGON COUNTY, Mich. (WZZM)-If your heading to a Muskegon County campground for the Fourth of July, you likely won't be able to launch fireworks.

Muskegon County parks prohibit the use of any fireworks, including sparklers. All three Muskegon County campgrounds and state park campgrounds have similar rules.

"The rule states, and always has, that there are no fireworks in the county parks. And the reason for that is that they are dangerous, they are disruptive and people do not pay attention to what time it is. It can be two or three in the morning sometimes," explained Jim Wood, Muskegon County parks superintendent.

Park staff will strictly enforce the ban because of the added potential danger this year for grass fires. Similar bans are also in place at almost all city parks.
