Fourth of July Safety

The legal sale of fireworks in South Dakota continues through Sunday. Officials are reminding people to be safe and use common sense as they celebrate the Fourth of July.

Pennington County Fire Administrator Denny Gorton urges residents to follow the instructions on the fireworks packages, plan for the unexpected and always have a bucket of water or garden hose ready. Gorton told Dakota Midday that his office’s main concerns over the next week as people shoot off fireworks is public safety and fire prevention.
