Missouri City's Fourth of July Fireworks on Schedule; Safety Precautions in Place
Posted on Jun 30th, 2011

Despite the area’s dry conditions, the event will be held from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. at 1122 Buffalo Run Blvd. and will also feature Laser Tag, video games, Bounce Houses, a Rock Wall and other activities for free. Fireworks will be set off at dusk.
 
A majority of the fireworks will be deployed over a lake and do not pose the risk of starting a grass fire.
 
"The fireworks that are utilized by our City display are deployed by trained and licensed pyrotechnic specialists following very stringent regulations," said Emergency Management Coordinator Curtis Campbell. "Additionally, the site is inspected for code compliance by prevention staff and the company providing the fireworks display has procedures in place for extinguishing spot fires."
 
The Fire Department will also have safety apparatus on standby, as we do every year, in the event it’s needed, Campbell said. "Safety and fire prevention are very significant priorities with every display, regardless of the environmental conditions; however, fire crews at the event are aware of the increased danger regarding ground fuels and will adjust their tactics accordingly in the event a fire does ignite," he added.
 
Although the City display will be held, residents are advised that Texas Gov. Rick Perry has approved Fort Bend County’s request for a ban on the sale or use of fireworks through 7 a.m. on July 5. The order does not apply to municipal and government events or to private displays that have received advance approval by the County Fire Marshal.
