The Fourth of July and fireworks—it’s hard to think about one without the other. And it’s no wonder. The tradition is as old as the country itself. On the eve of the first Independence Day, founding father John Adams predicted future generations would celebrate with “Bells, Bonfires, and Illuminations from one end of this Continent to the other.”
As parents, it is always a joy to watch our children run, jump, climb, and make new friends at the playground. It makes sense that our little ones enjoy the playground so much that they sometimes forget about safety and the possibility of injuries. So, as a parent it's important to be conscious of the injuries that may occur while they are playing.
Thank you for your interest in our Take it from a Teen Challenge. As you saw in the video, Safe Kids and Union Pacific are joining together to provide teenagers with an opportunity to inspire their fellow teens to be safer around train tracks. Plus, a chance to win $200 or even $1,000!

During this special time of the year dedicated to keeping kids safe in cars and on the road, Safe Kids and our 400 coalitions are asking every parent and caregiver to take just a few minutes to make sure their car seat is used and installed properly. Just a simple checkup can make a big difference for the safety of your family.
