Fireworks Safety Tips for Families

Fireworks can result in severe burns​, blindness, scars and even death. Fireworks that are often thought to be safe, such as sparklers, can reach temperatures above 1000°Fahrenheit, and can burn users and bystanders. Families should attend community fireworks displays run by professionals rather than using fireworks at home.  You should check with local cities in the area to see if they are still hosting fireworks shows. Some are offering options to view from a distance.
If you or someone become injured or you want to report illegal activity please call 911 immediately!

The Managementt team cannot assist in emergencies. We do not have jurisdiction to address local or state ordinances and laws.


Pets and the 4th
Unlike people, pets don’t associate the noise, flashes, and burning smell of pyrotechnics with celebrations. Pets are terrified of fireworks, and often panic at the loud whizzes and bangs they produce. Please remember yours and others pets during your 4th of July Celebrations



Summer Dangers for Pets

Ready or not, the hot weather is here!

  • Walk dogs early in the morning or in the evening hours instead of in the middle of the day when it’s hottest.
  • If you prefer to leave your pet outdoors, always provide shelter to protect your pet from extreme temperatures and inclement weather. Always provide water as well.
  • Never leave your pet in a parked car, even with the windows cracked. It takes only minutes for a dog or cat to suffer a heat stroke. On an 85-degree day, for example, the temperature inside a locked car can reach 120 degrees in under ten minutes.
  • Check the temperature of the pavement with the back of your hand before you take your dog for a walk. If it burns you, it will burn the pads on your pet’s paws!

Tips for Being a Good Neighbor

Obey noise ordinance laws and avoid all unnecessary noise from any source from 9 p.m. to 9 a.m. This includes revving car engines, children riding scooters, loud voices, and whatever else may wake someone from a sound sleep.

Not everyone is a dog or cat lover, so show responsibility for your pets. That includes keeping them off the neighbor’s lawn and picking up after them.

Remember your neighbors during the holidays when you have out of town guests, try and be cognizant of their space. Ask your guests to park in your driveway or in front of your house; make sure they don’t block someone else’s driveway.

Maintain the exterior of your home and lawn.
  • Mow the lawn. Don’t let it get knee-high before doing something about it.
  • Remove mold from the exterior walls and paint when necessary.
  • Make sure that trees, shrubs, and other elements don’t creep into your neighbor’s yard. This includes tree limbs, spreading shrubs, and weeds.
  • Remove all bicycles, skateboards, and toys from the front yard at the end of the day.

No Trespassing
Please keep children, pets and motorized vehicles away from the edges of both ponds. The large pond is deep and the slopes are steep. If you see anyone camping or fishing near either pond, call the police. Trespassing is against the law.

Signs are posted around both ponds to reduce KCVA's liability in the case of accidental injury or drowning.
