Happy Independence Day!!

Happy 4th of July!!  Many of you will be enjoying  activities from backyard BBQ's,  Parades, Fireworks, to Pie Eating Contests. We truly hope you have a great Holiday celebrating everything that makes this Country Great.

We want to take just a moment to Thank all those who have, and are serving this Country.  From our Soldiers and Troops, to our FireFighters, EMS, Dispatchers and Law Enforcement folks who keep us safe, no matter what the calendar may say!  You all Rock!!

Here at CRESA911, we invite you to celebrate our nations heritage on this 4th of July, but we hope you celebrate safely!

Some Firework Safety Tips:
  • Use fireworks outdoors only.
  • Obey local laws. If fireworks are not legal where you live, do not use them.
  • Always have water handy. (A hose or bucket).
  • Only use fireworks as intended. Don't try to alter them or combine them.
  • Never relight a "dud" firework. Wait 20 minutes and then soak it in a bucket of water.
  • Use common sense. Spectators should keep a safe distance from the shooter and the shooter should wear safety glasses.
  • Alcohol and fireworks do not mix. Have a "designated shooter."
  • Only persons over the age of 12 should be allowed to handle sparklers of any type.
  • Do not ever use homemade fireworks of illegal explosives: They can kill you! Report illegal explosives to the fire or police department in your community.
