Fireworks Safety

Along with family and friends, the Fourth of July brings fireworks. Doug Van Gorkom, Pella Fire Chief, reminds everyone that even legal fireworks, such as sparklers can start a fire. Doug continues to warn that when you mix fire and explosives, dangerous situations can occur. If you are going to be lighting anything on fire, he advises having water on standby, and to be prepared to call 911 in case something goes wrong.
