Our Travel trailer was destroyed by the floods of Hurricane Irene. We were completely covered, while most of our neighbors were not. Flaherty Insurance really came through!

At Flaherty Insurance, we know Summer time is fun time. One of the biggest and best Summer holidays is, of course, Independence Day. This is America’s holiday, and it is tradition to gather, grill, party, swim, and generally make the most of the outdoors.
Fireworks have been a July 4th tradition since the beginning. On July 3rd, 1776, John Adams, in a letter to his wife, Abigail, wrote that the occasion of the signing of the Declaration of Independence would be celebrated “with Pomp and Parade, with Shews, Games, Sports, Guns, Bells, Bonfires and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other from this Time forward forever more.”
For all you Marshfieldians out there, this reveals the history of your celebrations on the 3rd, as well as your old tradition of huge bonfires along Humarock Beach.
Let’s work together to make sure you have a happy and safe holiday!
Fireworks: According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), “240 people on average go to the emergency room every day with fireworks related injuries around the July 4th holiday.”
Grilling: According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), “each year, an average of 8,800 home fires are caused by grilling, and close to half of all injuries involving grills are due to thermal burns.”
