“Leave fireworks to the pros this year, county sheriff’s office urges”
“Local law enforcement agencies and fire departments are gearing up for a hot, dry Fourth of July this year. Thurston County has already put a burn ban into effect, and the Thurston County Sheriff’s Office is urging residents to leave fireworks to the pros. And as in other years, deputies are already preparing to respond to dozens of fireworks-related calls during the holiday weekend.
““We certainly understand that the potential for injury or property damage exists any time fireworks are discharged,”Lt. Cliff Ziesemer said. “But we’re going to have to focus our limited resources on the situations where there is an immediate threat to lives and property.'”
Fireworks may only be discharged in unincorporated Thurston County from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. on July 3 and 4,” quoting Amelia Dickson, The Olympian.
