Celebrating the Fourth of July
Independence Day is an important time to reflect on the freedoms we enjoy in our nation and to recognize the courage of members of our armed services throughout our history in protecting those freedoms.  The Fourth of July is also a great day for celebrating with family and friends, including parades, cookouts, and fireworks.
If you plan on including fireworks in your family’s celebration, the Department of Health Services (DHS) provides a number of tips for safely setting off fireworks.  Please visit for more information on enjoying fireworks while avoiding injuries.
I wish you and your family a safe and happy Fourth of July!
