Remember that fireworks can pose a fire and safety hazard to those who use them and to bystanders. Use caution when shooting fireworks, and be sure to follow these recommended safety tips from https://www.safekids.org/tip/fireworks-safety-tips:
Per AAA, a record number of Americans, nearly 49 million, are making plans to honor the Red, White and Blue with an Independence Day getaway this year. For anyone who is traveling this 4th of July weekend, remember to always wear your seat belt and never drink and drive – instead, call a designated driver to get you home safely. Not only do you risk your life when you drive impaired, you are putting the other drivers you share the roadway with at risk, too.
The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office wishes everyone a fun and safe 4th of July weekend!
