Each 4th, thousands of people, most often children and teens, are injured while using consumer fireworks.
Despite the dangers of fireworks, few people understand the associated risks - devastating burns, other injuries, fires and even death. We are currently in Wildfire Season which expands from June to October. Remember: possessing, discharging, or using any kind of firework or other pyrotechnic device on public lands is illegal at any time of the year. Please be responsible and do not use consumer fireworks and instead, enjoy displays of fireworks conducted by trained professionals.
And remember, "They aren't called FIRE WORKS for nothing!"
Stay safe and have a Happy 4th of July!
