Safety Tips for Summer Fire Season, Courtesy’s Wayne Corey

With the fire season upon us, Publisher Wayne Corey wants to remind everyone to review the fire safety tips listed below and be prepared for all contingencies.

For the 4th of July: please check on your community’s fireworks code to make sure you are not breaking the law. For example; in Des Moines where fireworks are illegal, an officer responding to a complaint may now give a ticket for illegal discharge without having to view the actual incident. It is a $513 penalty for the civil infraction. If there is reckless discharge or over a certain amount in their possession it can be a criminal offense.

Please check your local listings as almost every community has a fireworks display on the 4th for the whole family to view.
