According to the National Fire Protection Association July is the peak month for grill fires at 18 percent including both structure, outdoor or unclassified fires, followed by June at 15 percent. They also report that children under five accounted for an average of 2,000 or 39 percent of contact-type burns per year. These burns typically occurred when someone, often a child, bumped into, touched or fell on the grill, grill part or hot coals. In addition, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services reports that more than 1 out of every 3 Americans reports getting sunburned each year. Further, the Consumer Product Safety Commission reports that on average, 180 people go to the emergency room every day with fireworks-related injuries in the month around the July 4th holiday.
