Independence Day is almost here and EWEB’s top priority over the long holiday weekend is public health and safety. Remember, fireworks and power lines do not mix! Using fireworks near power lines could lead to a fire, explosion, power outage or downed line.
To help keep you, your loved ones, and your community safe while celebrating, ask yourself these firework safety questions:
Additional safety tips from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission:
Put used fireworks in a bucket of water before disposing to ensure there are no hidden embers that could ignite a fire. Eugene has seen a lot of rain this year, but vegetation fires are still possible. More rain means more vegetation (more fuel for fire). So, take extra precaution and don’t use fireworks near vegetation.
Reminder: The City of Eugene has a temporary ban on all fireworks in the south hills, south from 18th Avenue and east of Agate Street through 2022. Learn more here.
While celebrating, remember safety first. Happy Independence Day from EWEB!
