4th of July Safety
Fireworks are prohibited in city limits:
The storage, use, possession or sale of fireworks is prohibited inside the city. The exception to the rule is the City's Fourth of July fireworks show, which is free to the public.
The Burleson Fire Marshal's Office and/or the Burleson Police Department can write the tickets. Violations of the fire code are subject to a fine of up to $2,000. Each day that a violation is permitted to exist is a separate offense.
Pets: Please make sure to bring your pets in or put them in a safe place before the fireworks start. The Burleson Animal Shelter takes in more pets after the 4th of July than on any other day of the year. Before the 4th,
stop by the Burleson Animal Shelter and get your pet microchipped. The fee is $15, regardless of where you live. You have to provide proof of rabies vaccination to get the microchip.
