Remember That Fireworks Not Allowed on Campus, in Houston City Limits

Houston, June 26, 2015 — With the Fourth of July holiday just around the corner, the University of Houston Fire Marshal's Office would like to remind everyone that fireworks are not allowed on campus or within the city limits of Houston.

Although fireworks and Independence Day celebrations often go hand in hand, fireworks can be dangerous when used improperly, causing serious burn and eye injuries. That is why the UH Fire Marshal's Office, along with the Harris County Fire Marshal's Office, strongly recommend that people leave fireworks to the professionals.

For those who do plan to use fireworks off campus and out of the city, please follow the safety tips outlined here.
