Sky rockets will soar and missiles with fins will illuminate the night this Fourth of July holiday thanks to a recent lift on the ban of aerial fireworks in Comal County For the past two summers county commissioners have barred fireworks from the annual Independence Day festivities because of dangerous drought conditions But thanks to Mother Natures generosity the parched earth has been saturated enough by recent rainfall to safely allow the use of the traditional fireworks within county lines Comal County fire marshal Lin Manford said The drought index is the lowest it has been in a long he said With the rain weve had I dont think were going to have a problem with the fire But Manford cautioned that residents still should use extreme care when launching fireworks during the holiday weekend Residents need to follow safety rules and use good common Manford said If people arent careful they could acci dentally set a roof or brush on Those planning on hitting the local fireworks stands also should remember its illegal to ignite or discharge fireworks within or from a motor vehicle Manford said Placing ignited fireworks in or throwing ignited fireworks at a motor vehicle is also illegal Weve had kids do that in the past and its Man ford said Anyone caught violating the law could be fined up to and sentenced to 180 days in jail Manford said The ase of fireworks is banned within the New Braunfels city limits Safety Tips for Fireworks Always purchase high quality fireworks from reliable sources Follow the printed instructions carefully Use common sense An adult should be present when fireworks are used and never give fireworks to small children Never point or throw fireworks at another person Use fireworks in a clear area away from houses and build ings Never carry fireworks in your pocket or shoot them in metal or glass containers Light only one item at a time and then move back quickly once the fuse is ignited Dont experiment with homemade
