Roebbelen wishes you a Happy and SAFE Independence Day!

As you’re celebrating our great nation and spending quality time with family and friends this weekend, we urge you to take a few simple steps to stay safe and sound:

  • No illegal fireworks! Follow local ordinances when purchasing and using fireworks. Fireworks of all sizes and types are illegal in unincorporated areas of the county.

  • Read and follow directions when using fireworks.

  • Only use fireworks outdoors, away from dry grass or other flammable materials.

  • Always have an adult present, and do not give fireworks to small children.

  • Keep a supply of water and fire extinguisher nearby.

  • Keep your pets indoors in a quiet, sheltered and escape-proof area — and make sure their tags and microchips are up to date just in case.

  • Never attempt to relight or fix fireworks that have malfunctioned.

  • Dispose of used fireworks safely by soaking them overnight and wrapping them in plastic bags to prevent them from drying out.

  • If you’ll be grilling, use your grill at a safe distance from your home, trees, pets and kids.

  • Avoid loose clothing when grilling or using fireworks.

By following these guidelines, you’ll help our community have a safe and enjoyable holiday.
