July 4th is a time of celebration- backyard grilling, neighborhood gatherings, fireworks displays. Unfortunately, July is also peak month for grill fires, and every year, an estimated 11,000 people are treated for injuries related to fireworks. Also, more pets go missing on the Fourth of July than any other day of the year. Click below for safety tips from the Jackson County Sheriff.
