As we head into the July 4th holiday, it is extremely important that all residents of our community are aware of the fire danger we are facing in the city and surrounding areas.
With no professional fireworks displays this year due to COVID-19, we expect household firework use to be far greater than usual. All of us at PF&R are concerned about your safety and we would like you to please pay close attention to the following advice:
Please only use fireworks that you purchased in Oregon, use them safely and have a fun July 4th!
MEDIA FIREWORKS DEMO: Members of the media are invited to see a demonstration of how to safely use fireworks, how to dispose of them and talk about common household dangers during fireworks season. Demo’s will happen Wednesday July 1st and Thursday July 2nd between 12pm-3pm.
Email your demo request to firstname.lastname@example.org for location and time.
