4th Of July Safety & Fun

4th of July Message from the Sheriff

The Tift County Sheriff’s Office wishes you and your family an exciting and safe 4th of July holiday. The 4th of July holiday is a celebration of our becoming independent as a country on July 4th, 1776. To learn more about Independence Day history from PBS.org, click here.

Before you celebrate with an at-home fireworks display, please make sure you practice safety and know the laws in our state.   You’ll find the state law listed at the bottom of this page.

Remember that fireworks can pose a fire and safety hazard to those who use them. Use caution when shooting fireworks.

  •     Never allow young children to play with or ignite fireworks.
  •     Avoid buying fireworks that are packaged in brown paper because this is often a sign that the fireworks were made for professional displays and that they could pose a danger to consumers.
  •     Never point or throw fireworks at another person.
  •     Keep a bucket of water or a garden hose handy in case of fire or other mishap.
  •     After fireworks complete their burning, douse the spent device with plenty of water from a bucket or hose before discarding it to prevent a trash fire.

For anyone who is traveling this 4th of July weekend, remember to always wear your seat belt and never drink and drive – instead, call a designated driver to get you home safely. Not only do you risk your life when you drive impaired, you are putting the other drivers you share the roadway with at risk, too.

The Tift Sheriff’s Office wishes everyone a fun and safe 4th of July weekend!

 

Sheriff Gene Scarbroug
