Meridian and Boise Fire Departments are reminding people about the importance of celebrating safely this Fourth of July. For families who plan to purchase fireworks and light fireworks at home, it is important to keep in mind that they must be legal and used with caution. “When it comes time for lighting fireworks you want to be aware of where you are and who's around you,” said Boise Fire Marshal Jerry McAdams. “The best place is on pavement, like a driveway or parking lot, and make sure you're ready with a hose if something does happen.” With firework ordinances varying among cities, Meridian and Boise residents should be aware of their city’s ordinances prior to purchasing fireworks.
