As the 4th of July approaches, the officers and members of Aetna would like to remind you of the dangers associated with fireworks.  Almost half of fires that take place on Independence Day are the result of fireworks, as well as countless injuries.  Consider instead attending a professional fireworks display such as the City of Newark's Liberty Day at the UD Athletic Complex.  See the below link to the National Fire Protection Association for further information on fireworks safety.  We hope that you have a safe and happy holiday!
