As we enter the Independence Day weekend, please keep in mind a few facts about fireworks.
1- They are dangerous, regardless of the size. Not only can they injure or kill, but start fires.
2- The noise can injure or kill some animals. This is very traumatic for pet owners too.
3- Many in our community are sensitive to the noise made, as it can trigger PTSD and anxiety.
4- Because they’re legal, it does not mean you can do whatever you want with them, wherever you want. There are laws for how, when or why, and they will be enforced.
We all know that it’s disappointing to many that there are no public displays in the area this year. For many in our community, it’s a welcome break.
Be kind and safe.
And wear a mask when you leave the house!
