Bracing For The Sparks

Margueritte Hickman talks about fire station preps for the 4th.

If only the Declaration of Independence had been signed in March. 

Then we'd have fireworks in the part of the year when it's not so hot and dry. 

Alas, we celebrate independence on July 4th. 

Even in towns where consumer fireworks are illegal--like Ashland--firefighters keep a sharp eye out for sparks around the holiday. 

Ashland Fire Marshal Margueritte Hickman joins us.
