Independence Day

02 Jul

How It Began

The Fourth of July—also known as Independence Day —has been a federal holiday in the United States since 1941, but the tradition of Independence Day celebrations goes back to the 18th century and the American Revolution. On July 2nd, 1776, the Continental Congress voted in favor of independence, and two days later delegates from the 13 colonies adopted the Declaration of Independence, a historic document drafted by Thomas Jefferson.

July 4th: A Celebration of Unity

From 1776 to the present day, July 4th has been celebrated as the birth of American independence, with festivities ranging from fireworks, parades and concerts to more casual family gatherings and barbecues. After the Revolutionary War, Americans continued to commemorate Independence Day every year, in celebrations that allowed the new nation’s emerging political leaders to address citizens and create a feeling of unity.


Heavy Rain Could Dampen Holiday Celebrations

This year’s holiday comes on a Thursday and companies like Case Medical will be closed over the long weekend. What are  likely to experience over the next few days? Looking at the National Weather Service predictions:  it’s going to be hot. Temperatures in NJ are expected to  approach 95 Degrees. According to forecasters from NOAA’s National Weather Service nationally we should expect hot, humid weather which could lead to storm development. During the holiday weekend two heavy storms will cross the country resulting in severe thunderstorms and heavy rainfall in several cities. Excessive heat will be present from the Desert Southwest into interior California and the Northwest.

When Trouble Roars Go Indoors

Safety first. During the expected hot summer days keep you and your family safe. Have a severe weather plan in place and stay away from the beach when there are thunderstorms or riptides. Be sure to check the important safety tips before heading outside during periods of severe weather. When working or playing in the heat drink a glass or two of water before heading outside and remember to sip throughout the day. Keeping hydrated is important to staying healthy in the summer heat. Avoid ultra processed food and drinks which are linked to many long-term health conditions. For us at Case Medical, we are shutting down our CNC equipment, giving our folks time off, and putting up our flood barriers on each entrance and exit of our building before the holiday once again to avoid any chance of flooding.
