Celebrate Independence Day safely and legally leave the fireworks to the pros!
The City of Fort Worth wants you to have a happy and safe Fourth of July celebration.
Each July Fourth, thousands of people, most often children and teens, are injured while using consumer fireworks. Unfortunately, despite the dangers of fireworks, many people disregard the associated risks - devastating burns, other injuries, fires, and even death.
Fort Worth Fire Chief Rudy Jackson urges citizens to “Protect your children, protect yourself, protect your property by attending a professional fireworks show.”
Fort Worth’s Fourth is one of many professional fireworks displays in the City that you can attend to celebrate our Nation’s freedom. Click on this link: 2013 Fireworks Shows to see a list of professional shows scheduled in Fort Worth.
