The key to hiring great people is to have great leadership in the first place. Hiring someone just because of their certifications can be a huge mistake. At Tower Force we believe attitude and a willingness to work with others trumps education and platitudes. click here for full article



Safe Disposal of Unused, Misfired, or “Dud” Fireworks

1.    Once they have completely burned, fully submerge fireworks in a large bucket of water and soak until thoroughly saturated. This may take 15 minutes for small fireworks or several hours for larger ones.

2.    Double wrap the completely soaked fireworks in plastic wrap or two plastic bags so they do not dry out.

3.    Place the double-bagged fireworks in the household trash or bring them to your local solid waste facility.

4.    Ask your local fire department or solid waste facility about other disposal options that may be available in your community.

Fireworks Safety Tips for the Fourth of July
Follow these tips when using fireworks to ensure you and your family have a fun and safe Fourth of July.

July 4 celebrates the adoption of the Declaration of Independence—and for many people, the celebration includes fireworks. Americans have been setting off fireworks to celebrate their independence since as early as 1777.

Yet, the thrill of colors exploding in the sky comes with dangers as well. On average, over 250 people go to the emergency room each day with  fireworks-related injuries  in the month leading up to Independence Day.

Follow these tips when using fireworks to ensure you and your family have a fun and safe holiday.

1.    Make sure fireworks are legal in your locality and state before buying or using them. Even if your state allows fireworks, that doesn’t mean that your county, town, or city permit their use.

2.    Never let young children play with or set off fireworks.

3.    Don’t carry fireworks in your pocket or shoot them off in metal or glass containers.

4.    Never place any part of your body directly over a fireworks device when lighting the fuse. Back up to a safe distance immediately after lighting fireworks.

5.    Keep a bucket of water or a garden hose handy in case of fire.

6.    Never re-light or immediately pick up fireworks that have not ignited fully.
