Happy Fourth of July from WSAJ! We’d like to take a moment to remind you to be safe with fireworks, especially during this statewide drought. Governor Inslee just sent out this reminder:
“An early wildfire season has already begun in our state, and conditions all across the state are much drier and hotter than usual. The 4th of July weekend is approaching and there is, rightfully, heightened concern about the risks posed by use of fireworks. No matter what people have done with fireworks in past years, these conditions require us all to exercise an extraordinary amount of caution and safety this year… I have… already issued a statewide emergency proclamation to activate additional resources that will help prevent and contain wildfires, and I’ll continue urging residents to do all they can to keep themselves and their neighbors safe this 4th of July.”
WSAJ is working to protect residents from wildfires. Recently, WSAJ finalized our efforts to provide free legal help in the event of disasters, including wildfires. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
