Chief Gregory H. Meyer wants all to celebrate their patriotism safely while
marking the upcoming Fourth of July
holiday weekend.

The is a reminder that fireworks are
dangerous and illegal, with the exception of certain sparkling devices and novelty items, and should only be handled by the professionals.

It’s important to know that the danger is not only limited to general
Fourth of July fireworks. Even sparklers, which are now exempt from the state’s fireworks ban, should be kept away from small children, as they can easily cause harm. #safety #july4th #patriotic
