With the Independence Day holiday quickly approaching, the borough of Trafford’s foremost concern (as with any other day of the year) is the safety of our community.
Just because the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania has recently changed it’s laws in regards to sales of fireworks it may not necessarily pertain to use of fireworks.
Please be mindful of the safety of yourself and others around you.
Be respectful of your neighbors.
