Officials encourage safety when using fireworks this Fourth of July

The Longview Fire Department in Texas has cautioned residents to be cautious and put safety first in the coming Independence Day celebrations for the Fourth of July, including following the local government’s regulations about using fireworks, according to the Longview News-Journal on June 28.

According to a prepared statement by Longview Fire Education specialist Iesha Robinson, an estimated 90% of emergency accidents concerning fireworks involves those products which consumers are commercially allowed to use.

Robinson noted that citizens can take extra safety precautions by attending seminars and public displays regarding the use of fireworks conducted by professionals in the field. Robinson also said that Longview residents are not allowed to use fireworks in the city but can opt to celebrate the holidays with them in the county.

Vendors can start selling fireworks by June 1 up until midnight of July 4.
