Independence Day &
Fireworks Safety Reminders
With a holiday weekend approaching, the Town of Erie Police Department and Mountain View Fire Rescue would like to send a few fireworks safety reminders:
- Leave fireworks to the professionals! Join us at Colorado National Golf Club for the July 3rd Extravaganza! View more information here.
Do not use consumer fireworks! Did you know that Sparklers burn at a temperature of more than 1,200 degrees? Ouch!
Never pick up used fireworks casings. They can still be hot and burn you; some may still be active!
Be careful over the holiday with any type of heat source! Fires burn hot, fast and will take off before you know it!
REMINDER: Fireworks that leave the ground or explode are illegal and prohibited in the Town of Erie.
The Town of Erie Police Department and Mountain View Fire Rescue would like to wish everyone a happy and safe Independence Day. Remember, the safest thing for you and your family is prevention!
