16 - July 02, 2015 Your Hometown Newspaper News Outlook Provided by your Bath County Emer- ; gency Management Office t According to the U.SI Consumer Product Safety Eommission (CPSC), an stimated 9,700 people were treated in hospital mergency rooms for in- juries associated with fire- vorks. More than half the injuries were burns and inost involved the hands, eyes and head and 50 per- ent of the victims were "children under age 15. As the July 4th holiday approaches, the Home Safety Council urges fami- lies to enjoy fireworks the I safer way, by attending lo- cally sanctioned fireworks shows presented by pro- fessionals who adhere to safety codes. Fireworks are not toys, they are devices designed to reach high tempera- tures, to burn and spark, and to explode and launch. They are unpredictable by nature and too dangerous for nonprofessional users. Dr. Gary Smith, Direc- tor of the Center for In- jury Research and Policy at Columbus Children's Research Institute in Ohio conducted a 22-year study of fireworks injuries treat- ed in emergency rooms. What he found may help you understand the risk. Here is a sampling: 67 percent of spar- kler-related injuries were among children 5 years or younger 70 percent of patients treated for all fireworks in- juries were male Adult supervision was present in 54 percent of the cases The eyes were injured in nearly one-third of the cases The average age of patients was eight and 1/a years Although many states permit fireworks use by I| consumers, only trained and experienced experts should use or transport fireworks. Read more about fireworks regula- tions in your state. Be aware fireworks safety is not a supervision issue. A fireworks injury can happen in the blink of an eye, whether or not a parent is standing by with a bucket of water. During the holiday, keep in mind that the safest amateur use of fireworks is none at all. Stephanie Stewart, Bath County Emergency Man- agement, provides this public service announce- merit.

The moon- shaped circle with two slashes and a curvy mouth always seem to remind us of the importance of having fun and lock- ing up moments of pleasure. We want to believe that "Life is Good!" But is it? And when it isn't, what are we to do? Imagine a day that begins with a beauti- ful sunrise and soon after breakfast dark clouds filled with dreadful news bring some of life's reali- ties into sharp focus. Imagine a conversa- tion with God that goes something like this: "You know, God, I do trust You and believe that You are concerned about me but that phone call informed me that I lost my job." Or "My daughter has just confessed to being addicted to crack cocaine." Or "My son got his girlfriend pregnant and they are juniors in high school." Or "God my spouse left me for some- one else!" Life hap- pens. It did to David. It does to us. God was his "rock," his "strong fortress" and his "refuge." Sud- denly, life changed. He was "afflicted," in "anguish" and about to be "en-snared by a trap that was set" for him by his friends. His "eyes and bones were weak," he was a "dread to his friends" and his "name was being slandered." Where's your God, David? Give up? No. He challenged the goodness of God and reminded Him that "I trust in You, O Lord. You are my God. De- liver me!" And God did. David challeng- es us to "Love the Lord because the Lord pre-serves the faithful. Be strong, take heart, and hope in the Lord!"
