Fireworks - Love'Em or Hate'Em

FIREWORKS LOVE ‘EM OR HATE’EM


Even though they have been around for centuries, fireworks

become very popular around July 4 and New Year’s Eve. They

bring excitement and joy to some and sorrow and angst to others.

Florida law allows the public to explode fireworks legally on the 4 th

of July, on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day ONLY. In

Buckhorn, numerous people partake in the festivities. If you do

so, please note the following considerations and act accordingly:


 Remember that we have residents that work shift work and

they need to get their sleep in order to report to work at the

hospital, Police/Sheriff’s office, MacDill, etc.


 Buckhorn has many veterans living here, some of whom

suffer from PTSD.


 Don’t use fireworks night after night for several nights just

because you can afford to by them.


 Many of our residents’ pets suffer from the loud noise also.

Some pets will try to escape in order to get away from it.


 If you use fireworks that go into the air and explode then

YOU need to be sure you can do so in an area that the falling

fireworks will not land on pool screens, roofs and vehicles

where the heat can cause damage.


 It is illegal to explode fireworks on public property like

Buckhorn Park.

 Each year people using fireworks suffer lifelong injuries.

Last year some Floridians lost fingers, hands, eyes and

suffered second/third degree burns on their body.


 Be prepared to have rakes, brooms and trash cans at hand to

clean up all your debris immediately following your

fireworks fun. This is very important especially if you use

the streets in Buckhorn or the Buckhorn Springs Golf Club

property.


BE A RESPONSIBLE RESIDENT AND A POSITIVE EXAMPLE TO OTHERS!
