City urges patriots to respect neighbors, use fireworks courtesy


The city of Perry reminds residents that fireworks inside the city limits of Perry are allowed on the Fourth of July from 9 a.m. until 11 p.m. only.

Fireworks may only be used on your own property or on someone else’s property, if you have permission. Fireworks are never allowed on public property, such as parks, streets or sidewalks.

Let your neighbors know when you plan to shoot off fireworks. The noise and lights of fireworks can often have an adverse effect on some people and animals, so your neighbors deserve the courtesy of a warning so they can prepare.

Clean up any mess and debris that your fireworks produce, particularly residue that lands on someone else’s property.

Children should not handle fireworks. Fireworks may only be used by persons over 18 years of age.

Don’t use fireworks if you are under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Being impaired increases the possibility of injury to yourself or others.

Avoid lighting your fireworks in any area where there is dry grass, dry brush or any flammable items that could catch fire. Water down spent fireworks before disposing of them.

Use common sense and follow the laws. Be safe. Be respectful. Enjoy the Fourth of July in Perry!
