Visits to ERs in East Texas will be up this week because of fireworks-related injuries, but you can protect yourself.
It's a Fourth of July tradition - get the family together, grill up some burgers & dogs, enjoy one of our local festivals or fairs, and then get on a picnic blanket and watch the fireworks that celebrate our country's freedom.
