Fireworks on the Fourth of July are an American tradition, but they should always be used with caution. For instance, fireworks should never be set off near power lines. The safest way to experience fireworks is by enjoying a local, professional show. If you are going to use consumer fireworks, it is very important that you use them exclusively in open areas, where no power lines can be seen (and only in places where allowed by local ordinances).
If fireworks become tangled in power lines, call PEC immediately at 888-883-3379. If there is a fire, call 911.
