The Nebraska State Fire Marshal's office says 144 people were injured in 2010 by misuse of fireworks.

 

In the city of Omaha, residents can shoot off fireworks from 8 am to 11 pm through Wednesday. An ophthalmologist at the University of Nebraska Medical Center says if you choose to do so, wear eye protection and don't let children use fireworks.

 

Dr. John Peters says 1,300 people suffered eye injuries nationwide last year due to misuse of fireworks. He says about half of those injuries were to people under age 19.
