Should New Mexico Ban Fireworks for the upcoming July 4th Holiday?
New Mexico have had its share of wildfires for this season.
With the blistering temperatures across the state...I think now is the time to put a statewide ban on all fireworks. It is a very tough call for our decision-makers, but a prudent one.
This is not intended to dampen the holiday spirits, but let's take a closer look:
Triple-digits temperature across the state
No Sign of rain anywhere
Vegetation all across the state is quite plentiful to start a fire
Public Safety should be Priority One
