Fireworks Safety Reminder

Fireworks are a summer highlight, but it’s crucial to prioritize fire safety. If hot residue from your fireworks causes a wildland fire, you could be liable for the costs. Instead of setting off your own, consider attending an organized fireworks display.

Stay Clear of Waterbombers

When waterbombers approach a water body, move your watercraft close to shore to allow safe scooping. Remember, waterbombers will not scoop if watercraft pose a safety hazard. Be safe and stay clear.
