With D4 Exceptional Drought conditions already declared for the Kohala coast and potentially in Kau, the Hawaii Fire Department has issued a request for anyone planning to use fireworks on the 4th of July to use extreme caution.
More specifically, the Fire Department is asking Big Island residents to opt for attending a scheduled public display and avoiding consumer fireworks altogether.
The risk of brush fires is especially high in South Kohala. Unnecessary fires put property at risk and result in high costs to taxpayers.
Three public events are scheduled around the Big Island for Sunday, July 4th
Hilo Bay Blast - Activities begin with the "Hot Rides Expo" at 10 am. The Hawaii County Band will perform its 4th of July concert in the Bandstand at 7 pm. The concert is performed in synchronized coordination with the Lehua Jaycees Fireworks Exhibition, which begins at about 8 pm.
