Be Safe on the 4th....Reduce Home Fires

Be Careful on July 4th!!!

I always loved fireworks as a kid.  Without a doubt, today's limits on fireworks are much different than back in the dark ages.  Yet, there still lots of fun to be had.


But with the tinder dry conditions around the country, 2012 is a year to take care.  No one wants to burn down their house or a neighbor's home or start a brush fie.


Consider the following precautions:


1.  Contact Local Fire Department or their website for "no burn"
        notices


2.   Shoot off only legal fireworks in open spaces outdoors only.


3.   Do not point, throw, toss, project any lit firework in the 
        direction of any structures(houses, shed, playground 
        equipment.


4.   Keep open flames and lit punks separate from unlit fireworks.


5.   Have bucket of water, running hose and/or fire extinguisher
       ready available anytime fireworks are being used.


6.   Always handle fireworks only in the presence of a responsible 
       adult.   

Have fun on the 4th!!!  Enjoy a swim, a barbecue and lots of time with friends and family.
