With the 4th of July rapidly approaching, the Officers and Members of the Aetna Hose, Hook, and Ladder Company, along with the National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) would like to remind you of the dangers associated with fireworks and to exercise extreme caution around them.  Improperly used fireworks cause thousands of severe injuries and countless fires every year.  A safe alternative is the professional produced Independence Day Celebration hosted by the City of Newark at the University of Delaware Athletic Complex.  See the below link from the NFPA for further information as well as a link to the City of Newark's website.  We hope that you have a safe and happy holiday!
