Happy Independence Day

On the 4th of July, we gather with friends and family to celebrate our great nation.

Portland Fire & Rescue Chief Erin Janssens reminds Portlanders to enjoy the holiday, but to remember to celebrate safely.

If you observe the holiday by setting off fireworks, remember that Oregon requires fireworks not to fly, explode, or travel more than one foot into the air, or more than six feet on the ground.

Whether you gather for a barbecue, watch a baseball game, or set off fireworks, have a safe and fun Independence Day!
