Chief shares about fireworks safety

From Local Sources

JASPER — Jasper Fire Chief Kenny Hochgesang is sharing information regarding the safe and proper use of fireworks this Fourth of July.

“One thing fireworks users tend to forget is that they are responsible for where fireworks are set off, where they go and the mess they leave behind,” Hochgesang said.

He asks that residents be respectful and courteous of their neighbors by following state guidelines and to remember to set a good example for your neighborhood by cleaning up all debris left behind after discharging fireworks.

Fireworks may be used: only on the user’s property; on the property of someone who has consent to their use on that property; at a special discharge location.

Consumer fireworks may only be used as follows: from 9 a.m. to midnight on July 4; from 9 a.m to 11 p.m. on other days.
