Have a Safe and Festive Independence Day Weekend!

This year’s Independence Day Weekend is a unique one, and your Anchorage Fire Department reminds everyone to practice fire safety and reduce the risk of exposure to COVID-19.

As a reminder, it is unlawful to knowingly sell, possess, or use any fireworks within the Municipality of Anchorage. Please call 311 to report illegal fireworks use. Call 911 only if a fire or significant injury is involved.

Do your part to stop the spread of COVID-19 in Anchorage over this holiday weekend. Stay local, enjoy the outdoors, avoid unnecessary travel and support local businesses. Practice physical distancing by staying at least 6 feet away from others not of your household, wearing a facemask to protect those around you, and wash your hands often.

And if you do travel, please don’t operate any type of motorized vehicle while fatigued or under the influence of alcohol, marijuana, or other drugs.

The AFD wishes all residents and visitors of Anchorage a safe and festive Independence Day Weekend!
