As the Fourth Of July weekend is here. We hope that all can enjoy time with family and friends, in a safe manor. Below you will find the ordinance from Berkeley County on the discharge of fireworks. Please if you choose to shoot off fire works and or ground based sparklers. You should keep a safe distance from homes, out building and others.
