As we approach Independence Day, the fire department and other agencies are reminding people that all fireworks are prohibited in Lyon County. Given the local conditions, this is a good restriction, but one that many people ignore. I already have heard at least one report on the emergency services scanner of "shots fired" that upon investigation turn out to be people shooting off fireworks. So the North Lyon County Fire Protection District has a timely warning on their sign this week.
Fireworks are entertaining to watch, but can also be very dangerous. Don't be like T-Rex.
