NORMAN — Thankfully, most of central Oklahoma has had a bit of a wet June. The countryside is more green than brown, but that doesn’t mean residents can let their wildfire guard down.
County officials are reminding residents to be careful with fireworks this week. It only takes one careless individual to set the countryside on fire.
“We will have our trucks loaded with water. We’re always ready to go,” District 3 Commissioner Rusty Sullivan said.
Fireworks are illegal to possess or discharge in Norman’s city limits, but surrounding cities and unincorporated areas have less restrictive rules.
Norman Day festivities at Reaves Park are capped with a fireworks show. That usually includes enough firepower to last us an entire year.
