Boone Police want everyone to have a safe and happy Independence Day. To make that happen, Boone Police will be performing routine patrols during the holiday.
In the meantime, Boone Police Department’s Carl Underwood has a few tips on how to celebrate- and stay safe.
If you throw a party with alcohol,make sure you know who is coming, he said.
Make sure that everyone’s over 21- and do not let anyone drive while intoxicated, he said.
Fireworks provide a new set of dangers, he said. Only use legal fireworks, he says. Never let children use them- and always follow package directions.
Underwood recommends keeping water around- just in case things go awry. Never attempt to relight non-functioning fireworks. Soak fireworks before disposing of them.
If something does go wrong- don’t hesitate to give local rescue agencies a call, he says.
