Independence Day - Office Closed (Thursday, July 4, 2024)

Date Posted: 06/27/2024

Wishing you and your family a safe and exciting 4th of July holiday weekend. The 4th of July holiday is a celebration of our becoming independent as a country on July 4, 1776. To learn more about Independence Day history from PBS, please click here. 

Before you celebrate remember that fireworks can pose a fire and safety hazard to those who use them. Use caution when shooting fireworks, and be sure to follow these recommended safety tips:

Read cautionary labels and performance descriptions before lighting a firework

Never give fireworks to children

Wear safety glasses when shooting fireworks

Use the fireworks outdoors, away from buildings and vehicles

Dispose of fireworks safely (wet them down and place them in a metal trash can until the next day)

For anyone who is traveling this 4th of July weekend, remember to always wear your seat belt and never drink and drive - instead, call a designated driver to get you home safely. Not only do you risk your life when you drive impaired, you are putting the other drivers you share the roadway with at risk, too.

Wishing everyone a fun and safe 4th of July weekend!
