Happy Independence Day to all our first responders. Fire, EMS, LEO, and Dispatchers. Most notably our men and women in our armed forces. We thank you for your service and wish you to be safe this holiday. For those of you who are working, we thank you for protecting us and for your sacrifice.
Please remember to enjoy the holiday with safety in mind. Displays of fireworks should be in accordance with your local municipality. Please be aware of children and pets. Also, be aware of those who suffer from PTSD. Our veterans while having given much to us may still suffer from the effects of fireworks. Your display of patriotism may be enjoyable to you and your friends but may have an adverse effect to those who have traumatic memories that can be triggered with loud noises. Please be aware of your neighbors and celebrate responsibly.
Thank you and Happy Independence Day!
