The holiday weekend has come and gone. Our crews were extremely busy running 144 calls for service between July 1 – July 4, which included 102 medical-related calls, several heat-related, three brush fires, four dumpster fires, four structure fire incidents, six motor vehicles accident calls for service, and two watercraft accidents, one of which involved several subjects being injured.

 In addition, every year, citizens from all over the tristate area enjoy the spectacular Rockets over the River fireworks shows put on by the Laughlin Tourism Commission, and we are asked why we let the surrounding vegetation area burn. Years ago, when Don Laughlin purchased the Arizona land where the fireworks are now launched, a let-it-burn policy was agreed upon as a preventative measure. During the fireworks display on Monday (07/04/2022) night, sufficient resources were in place at the event to monitor these fires when and if they occurred.

 We would like to continue to encourage all citizens to keep fire safety a top priority!
