As we get ready to celebrate Independence Day, the City of Norwalk wants everyone to enjoy a fun, safe holiday and offers these tips over the upcoming holiday:
Sparkler, fountain and Fireworks Safety
Fireworks/sparklers injure more than 11,000 people a year. More than half of these injuries are burn-related. While sparklers and fountains are allowed, Connecticut law and the City’s code do not allow fireworks to be set off by non-licensed users. Fireworks can disrupt neighbors and may cause stress and anxiety in pets or military veterans. Please be considerate and respectful and do not launch fireworks. If residents hear or see fireworks in their area, they should call the Norwalk Police Department at (203) 854-3000 and provide the exact location to ensure the fastest response.
July is one of the peak months for grilling fires. Enjoy grilling your favorite meals this summer while also keeping your family safe.
Beach Safety Tips
Dehydration and sunburn can happen fast at the beach. Protecting yourself from the sun is one of the most important beach safety tips.
