Just so you know….

Fireworks banNeighbors,

I received this information from the City of Oklahoma and wanted to pass this on to you. Please do not set off any fireworks in the neighborhood.
You will find several public displays listed below, but it is against the law to set these off on private property.

Also please do not take your pets to public displays. It hurts their ears and scares them. Several pets are lost each year by taking them to a public display as they try to run to hid.
Have a safe holiday!

Check out the Fire Department’s video about fireworks safety for more information about how to stay safe this weekend, and share it with your friends.
