When many people think of Independence Day celebrations, they think of fireworks; however, most jurisdictions have city ordinances prohibiting the use of fireworks within or near the city limits. 

If you are unsure of the ordinances, it is always safer to check with the city or local fire department prior to the purchase or discharge of fireworks. Moreover, fireworks are not permitted in Williamson County parks.

To check an interactive county map with the fireworks free buffer zone area, go to this link:  https://gis.wilco.org/maps/?viewer=countymap.

Officials believe the safest way to enjoy fireworks is by attending a professional fireworks display sponsored by various jurisdictions and organizations throughout the area. Consumer fireworks can be dangerous when used improperly and can cause serious burns and eye injuries. 

Always check with your local fire department/district for recommendations or suggested precautions to follow before deciding to use them.
