Fireworks in the Park July 2nd!
Fire Department News and Fireworks Reminder
The Fire Department hopes all of our citizens are kicking off the summer and having a good time. We would also like to remind citizens to stay hydrated in the heat this year. Lack of hydration in this hot weather will lead to heat exhaustion and eventually a heat stroke. Please stay safe as you celebrate our Nation’s Independence this year. We look forward to continuing to serve our citizens and thank you for your support.
The City of Seagoville wants to remind its citizens that the use of fireworks inside or near city limits is prohibited. The City Ordinance states:
(a) The city council hereby declares the use or discharge of fireworks within the city limits and extending five thousand feet (5,000') outside the city limits a public nuisance. The city manager or designee is hereby authorized to take appropriate actions to abate such nuisance.
(b) It shall be a public nuisance and unlawful and an offense for any person to use or discharge fireworks within the city limits and extending five thousand feet (5,000') outside the city limits.
Violation of the fireworks ordinance may result in a fine up to $2000.00
Police Department news
ANIMAL CARE IN SUMMER HEAT
The Texas summer heat is quickly approaching. Animals left outside are required by City Ordinance and State Law to have adequate food, water and shelter to protect them from the weather.
City Ordinance also prohibits animals from being left or confined in a vehicle that could endanger the animal due to heat and lack of water. Please care for our fur-ever friends during the impending heat this summer.
DOUBLE CHECK YOUR VEHICLE DURING THE HOT SUMMER MONTHS
Heat is one of the leading weather dangers in Texas. Everyone is vulnerable to the heat, but some more so than others. It is NEVER safe to leave a child or pet locked in your car.
If you have a toddler in your household, lock your cars, even in your own driveway. Kids play in cars or wander outside and can get into a car and succumb to the heat in ten minutes. These tragedies can be avoided by taking simple safety measures.
