The summer season, starting with July Fourth celebrations, is almost here. As fire departments throughout the Commonwealth prepare for this busy time, be aware that my office is ready to provide the highest level of technical, compliance and enforcement support, 24/7. Please refer to my advisory below with July Fourth contact numbers as well as additional environmental information on fireworks. Also, take a look at the brochure on Summer Safety Tips. Please email any comments, questions and suggestions about DFS Briefs to me at Stephen.Coan@state.ma.us.
