4th of July Message from Sheriff Eric King
The Oregon County Sheriff's Office wishes you and your family a safe and exciting 4th of July holiday. The 4th of July holiday is a celebration of our becoming independent as a country on July 4, 1776.

Before you celebrate with an at-home fireworks display, please make sure you practice safety and be courteous.

Remember that fireworks can pose a fire and safety hazard to those who use them.
Use caution when shooting fireworks, and be sure to follow these recommended safety tips from FireworksSafety.org: 

Read cautionary labels and performance descriptions before lighting a firework
 Never give fireworks to children
 Wear safety glasses when shooting fireworks
 Use the fireworks outdoors, away from buildings and vehicles
 Dispose of fireworks safely (wet them down and place them in a metal trash can until the next day)

For anyone who is traveling this 4th of July, remember to always wear your seat belt and never drink and drive-instead, call a designated driver to get you home safely.
Not only do you risk your life when you drive impaired, you are putting the other drivers you share the roadway with at risk, too.

The Oregon County Sheriff's Office wishes everyone a fun and safe 4th of July!

Sheriff Eric King
