Fire depart­ment urges safety ahead of hol­i­day week­end

The Hamilton Spectator - - Local -

With Vic­to­ria Day ap­proach­ing, the Hamil­ton Fire Depart­ment is re­mind­ing res­i­dents that fire­works can only be set off on your own prop­erty, and only on Vic­to­ria Day or the two days im­me­di­ately be­fore or af­ter the hol­i­day Mon­day. The depart­ment says that if you do plan to cel­e­brate by set­ting off fire­works, you should fol­low safety pre­cau­tions, in­clud­ing hav­ing adults han­dle the fire­works, care­fully read­ing and fol­low­ing in­struc­tions, and keep­ing a pail of wa­ter or hose nearby. If a fire­work is a dud or mis­fires, ap­proach it with cau­tion and never try to re-light it. For more safety tips, visit Hamil­ton.ca/ Fire.
