Firework Safety

Many families enjoy the 4th of July holiday with firework displays at their own home. Although they may be Beautiful, Fun and Exciting; they can also be dangerous, causing serious burns and injuries if handled incorrectly. The Galena Police Department would like to remind those setting off fireworks over the holiday to take the necessary steps and precautions to keep themselves and others safe.  Always be aware of the risks of accidents, personal injury and fires associated with the use of fireworks.
