Fireworks can cause significant property loss and damage. Lawns, shrubs, trees, bark, and roofs are just a few things that could go up in flames due to fireworks. Therefore, property managers should remind residents of local laws and rules on your property Independence Day celebrations begin. You could also consider encouraging your residents to use these safer alternatives.

Finally, make sure residents are aware of Firework and Noise Policies before celebrations begin.
