When we remember the warm summer nights of our childhood, our memories usually consist of lighting sparklers and setting off colorful fireworks. A large chunk of summertime fun is fireworks, however, it comes as a dangerous risk for owners of single-family rental homes in Muskegon. Even when taking all necessary precautions, and even if you’re just lighting small fireworks, things can easily go awry. There is a threat of real danger when it comes to personal injury and property damage should you mix fire and explosives.
On the authority of the National Fire Prevention Association, fireworks caused 11,000 injuries and 4 deaths in 2016. Besides personal injury, the NFPA discloses that fireworks start an average of 18,500 fires each year. 1,300 of those are structural fires and 300 are vehicle fires. It’s quite easy to envision how that develops: consider yourself one of the lucky ones if you have never come across a firework accidentally whirling underneath a parked car and undergone a moment of utter fright. Altogether, the NFPA considers that fireworks cause $43 million in property damage each year.
Because you are a property owner, you should be bothered about your Muskegon tenants lighting fireworks on or near your rental homes. Since it is understandable for us to know why they want to, the information and statistics alone are a persuasive rationale to communicate to your tenants about not deploying fireworks on your rental property. One course of action in order to prevail on them to carry out your request can be to offer them information on firework safety and the risks involved.
