Albuquerque Fire Rescue discusses July 4th fireworks safety

We are just three days away from firing up the grill, taking a dive into the pool, and celebrating America’s Independence Day. The 4th of July falls on a Saturday this year, which means more people will be able to take part in all the holiday festivities. However, with COVID-19 still looming in our state, as well as our dry conditions, there are safety precautions that we need to be aware of. We spoke with Tom Ruiz, Lieutenant Public Information Officer for Albuquerque Fire Rescue, about firework safety this year and how we can celebrate the 4th while staying safe at the same time.
