Fireworks Safety Tips
December 31, 2011 by staff
Fireworks are still banned inside the Lubbock city limits and certain types of fireworks are still banned, including rockets and missiles with fins.
Lubbock County Commissioners lifted the ban just before Christmas and local fireworks stands could not be happier. The industry has lost millions across the state of Texas in the past year.
But business has been steady, and they hope to recoup some of the loss heading into the new year.
New Deal Fire Chief Randy Teeter has this reminder: “You still need to be away from grassy areas. Somewhere around plowed areas. Anywhere that is free from grass and anywhere that will burn. Even though we’ve had moisture, the grass is still dead. It will still burn irregardless of how much moisture we’ve had.”
Fire departments also want to remind the public to pick up their debris and make sure they dispose of it properly.
