Analysis of the USEIR database indicated that a high proportion of fireworks-related injuries occurred among young males--a finding consistent with previous reports (1,2).
USEIR recommends that persons attend public fireworks displays; however, if persons choose to use fireworks, USEIR recommends that they not use bottle rockets, and when other fireworks are used, eye protection should be worn by operators, bystanders, and spectators.
In addition, because USEIR is a voluntary registry and not all states are affiliated, the numbers presented in this report may underestimate the problem nationally.
