Leave Fireworks to the Professionals and Join the Town’s Celebration on July 4th

IDC 3 optWith Independence Day just days away, there will be neighborhood parades, backyard barbecues and lots of celebrating! However, Town officials want to remind residents that shooting fireworks is illegal in Collierville as well as Shelby County. Although fireworks may be purchased across the state line, the Town’s ordinance bans the use of fireworks; violators may face fines and be held liable for damages and injuries.

“According to NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) there are more fires reported on the fourth of July, than any other day of the year and nearly half of these fires are caused by fireworks,” said Fire Chief Buddy Billings. “The Collierville Fire Department encourages you leave the fireworks to the professionals and not use consumer fireworks. The safest way for you and your family to enjoy fireworks is to attend the spectacular public display at Cox Park conducted by trained professionals!”

On May 20, 1960 an American Flag - that once flew over the Capitol Building in Washington DC - was raised in front of the first official Post Office in Collierville as part of the opening dedication.

Grilling Safety from the Collierville Fire Department

grill info optSummer fun often includes cooking outdoors with family and friends. Here are some safety tips for a happy and safe cook out season:

  • Gas and charcoal grills must only be used outdoors.
  • Position the grill well away from siding, deck railings and out from under eaves and overhanging branches. Never use a grill in a tent or on a balcony or an open porch for there is the danger of fire spreading to living areas; even the smoke given off by grills can be harmful if allowed to build up in nearby rooms or neighboring units. Apartment and condominium dwellers should grill in an open area away from the building.
