Fourth of July weekend is upon us once again, and so is the exponentially increased use of fireworks.

Please use fireworks with caution, as conditions are currently warm and dry, meaning that fire danger is high.

Albany County residents should also remember that fireworks are not to be fired within city limits. They may be fired on privately owned land within the county, provided that there are no fire restrictions in place. For a complete guideline on when and where you can light fireworks, click here.
