BE SAFE for the 4th of July Summer
More than ever, please be safe this 4th of July and summer 2020. We lost out on Memorial Day thanks to Covid-19 and after months of sheltering and social distancing, celebrating the official Cape Cod holiday summer opener will be welcomed like never before. However, it’s going to be even more important to follow Massachusetts health mandates and smart safety practices. Most if not all professional fireworks and parades will be non-existent this year increasing the likelihood of a lot more amateur shows and events. With people craving summer fun and a return to ‘normalcy’, parties and celebrations will be on steroids. We know you’ll enjoy, but please do so safely to avoid what could be tragic, lifetime consequences. Prevention is key!
- Attend public/professional fireworks displays if available (all others are technically illegal in Massachusetts)
- Keep 500 feet away from all firework sources
- Keep ample water nearby and pack your first aid kit
- Abstain from alcohol, marijuana or any other (illegal) substances
- Report dangerous or suspicious activity to police, fire, environmental wardens immediately
Enjoy Cape Cod Summer Fun
Classic to New England, summer on Cape Cod starts with Bourne and Sagamore Bridge gridlock eventually easing into lobster rolls, clam bakes, boils and barbecues, biking, boating and bashes. People visit whether it’s for a week or the entire school vacation and they come from all over – Boston, New Hampshire, New York, Vermont, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Pennsylvania and as far north as Canada. It’s a blast no doubt! However, with the crowds come increased traffic, congestion in small towns and probably, a spike in cases of coronavirus.
The law office of Aiken & Aiken have experienced the pitfalls summer fun brings over four decades. We urge everyone to drink responsibly, act respectfully as it relates to people and property and please, follow the rules of the roads, beaches and newly adopted health and safety mandates in Massachusetts. If precautions are acknowledged and safety comes first, summer will be filled with a lifetime of happy memories.
Remember. Be Safe!
Happy 4th of July and beyond,
The Law Offices of Aiken and Aiken, PC
