Fire Department suggests celebrating Fourth of July at area events rather than individually; July 4, 2022 events listed

The St. Louis Fire Department is urging citizens not to set off fireworks at their homes.

“There is no safe way to discharge consumer fireworks,” Captain Garon Mosby  of the St. Louis Fire Department told a group of the media this week. “They’re very dangerous, severe injuries occur, emergency room visits, occupied building fires, vacant building fires and, of course in St. Louis, we have been accustomed to the dumpster fires.  We are a busy department we average 200 to 250 responses per day. Over the July 4th holiday 2020, on July 4th, we ran 572 responses,”

Mosby suggests people go to professionally done fire works events instead of doing their own.

“Fires caused by fireworks create a bigger burden for our first responders and put them in danger,” Fire Capt. Garon Mosby said.  “Celebrate the Fourth of July safely by attending the Fair St. Louis fireworks display Downtown or other safe, professionally produced show.”

Fair St. Louis
