Number of aviation accidents involving helicopters declining

The summer months are peak times for those who enjoy heading up to the skies, and that also means that it's the time when most helicopter accidents occur. The number of reported helicopter accidents has been slowly decreasing since 2006 at a rate of about 2 percent a year, but there are still many more accidents than Arizona residents may think.

While many people enjoy watching fireworks displays, firework accidents can cause severe burn injuries. According to a study conducted by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, 11,400 people were injured and eight were killed in firework-related incidents in 2013. Over half of those injuries occurred within a month of July 4.
