I would like to wish everyone a happy Fourth of July! I hope you and your family have an opportunity to take time and truly enjoy our nation’s birthday. As we celebrate let us not forget our fellow Americans who made the ultimate sacrifice to protect our independence, both here and abroad.
If you plan to use fireworks, please take all the necessary safety precautions, and only use fireworks that are legal in the District. As a rule of thumb if a firework can shoot in the air or emits a flame or sparks greater than 12’ it is illegal, and not safe to be used in an urban environment.
I hope you all have a safe and happy holiday!
