Safely Celebrate Memorial Day
Joliet, IL (May 22, 2012)— As the Memorial Day holiday approaches we take time to honor the United States service men and women who have served - and are serving - in the armed forces and honor those who have died in past wars. This holiday weekend also is a time when we visit with family and friends to kick-off the start of the summer season. But holidays can pose a safety risk to many. The most dangerous holidays in terms of injuries is the five-day period surrounding Labor Day, followed by Memorial Day, the Fourth of July, and Halloween.
