Happy and Safe 4th of July

Summer is in full swing with birds singing and temperatures rising. And as we approach the 4th, we would like to remind our community to be safe and smart. Remember that the DOF Burn Suspension is still in place for all non-cooking and non-warming fires larger than 3×3 in size, and the sale and use of fireworks is prohibited throughout the Kenai Peninsula Borough. Should you choose to celebrate with a cook out, please keep ample water on hand at all times. Conditions are dry, and you may be surprised to see how readily a fire pit can get out of control. Additionally, the COVID-19 virus is still a reality, so please practice social distancing to the best of your abilities while you enjoy these beautiful sunny days.
