    Fireworks Hospital Data Sheet

    The Office of the State Fire Marshal (OSFM) continues to be concerned about injuries caused each year by consumer fireworks. In the past, Illinois hospitals have provided valuable information concerning fireworks injuries that have occurred during the July holiday season.

    OSFM is interested in determining the use patterns and subsequent injuries that may result from fireworks. We are asking for your cooperation in helping to identify fireworks injuries that occur during the upcoming holiday period. Below is a link to the Fireworks Hospital Data Sheet which is now available for electronic submission. We ask that you report each fireworks injury presented to your emergency room between June 23rd and July 20th. Please have these submitted by August 15th so that your hospital may be included in our statistical report.

    Thank you for your concern and continued cooperation with our efforts to make the July holiday seasons as safe as possible.
