Safe and sane fireworks go on sale Friday in San Miguel

Safe and sane fireworks stands are set up on K Street next to Dos Hermanos Restaurant by the San Miguel Lions Club and downtown next to the community services district/fire department building by the San Miguel Fire Department volunteers. They will open Friday. These are the only fireworks that may be legally set off in San Miguel. Everyone, everywhere, please be careful because it is so dry.

Fire Department seeks volunteers

The San Miguel Fire Department is recruiting volunteers to join them in protecting homes and businesses in the San Miguel area. Excellent training is provided. Information and forms are available at or by contacting fire Chief Rob Roberson or assistant fire Chief Kelly Dodds at the community services district office in downtown San Miguel.
