Seven state recreation areas will allow fireworks on the 4th.
The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission reports visitors will be allowed to touch off fireworks at Branched Oak State Recreation Area (SRA) near Malcolm, Fort Kearny SRA near Kearney, Memphis SRA near Memphis, Fremont SRA near Fremont, Two Rivers SRA near Venice, Pawnee SRA near Emerald and Wagon Train SRA near Hickman.
Only fireworks approved for sale in Nebraska will be permitted and only from 8 o’clock in the morning of Independent Day until midnight.
Signs at the recreation areas will point visitors to the designated fireworks sites in the areas. Boundaries will be clearly marked, according to Game and Parks.
Game and Parks urges visitors to use extra caution with fireworks wherever dry conditions and high fire hazard exist.
Those using fireworks do so at their own risk. Children must be supervised. A park entry permit is required to enter a state recreational area.
