Have a Safe Independence Day, leave fireworks to the professionals

The Allen & Furr Agency wants everyone to have a safe Fourth of July but don’t put your home or children at risk.

While sparklers and similar non-explosive fireworks devices are legal in Georgia, Insurance and Safety Fire Commissioner Ralph Hudgens is urging citizens to use extreme caution to avoid injuries when using legalized fireworks during the Fourth of July holiday.

Even legal fireworks should only be used with close adult supervision,” Hudgens said. “For the sake of safety and seeing a spectacular display, your best bet is to attend a professional show.”

Here are some of our local Independence Day festivities and firework display offerings:
