Regulations, Safety and Resources
This Fourth of July, don't blow it. Last year, Snohomish County
Sheriff’s Office, Fire District and Fire Marshal respond to more than
four hundred 9-1-1 calls on the 4th of July. One of those calls was the
result of a marine flare which left a 4’x5’ hole in a neighbor’s wall
In 2009 there was more than $4.27 million in property damage as the result of fireworks. Be a good neighbor. Here are some tips on how to
