Fireworks Safety Tips from the Fire Marshal's Office

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. 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.  Click this story to read more safety tips on fireworks from the Williamson County Fire Marshal's Office.
