Our View: Be careful with fireworks
July 3, 2019
It’s a message that bears repeating every year: be careful with your fireworks.
With the Fourth of July holiday tomorrow, it’s inevitable that Sweetwater County residents will want to celebrate with the colorful sparks, sound and smoke most people enjoy. When used properly, fireworks can be a fun way to celebrate America’s Independence. However, there are dangers associated with their use as well. Anytime fireworks comes into play, the danger of starting a fire exists and we urge residents to follow Sweetwater County Fire Warden Mike Bournazian’s advice.
