070313 Fireworks Safety Precautions

MEREDITH — With final preparations underway for the town's Fourth of July fireworks display on Thursday, the Greater Meredith Program is reminding citizens about the special safety precautions that will be in force during the display which is scheduled to begin at 9:30 p.m.
The Fire Marshall for the State of New Hampshire requires 300 feet to be isolated around the area of the fireworks, so vehicles or spectators are permitted inside that perimeter.
To comply with safety regulations, the Meredith Boat Ramp and Town Docks will be closed, starting at 7 p.m. until 10:30 p.m. In addition, Route3 from Lake Street to Route 25 will be closed at 8:30 p.m. and re-opened at approximately 10:30 p.m. Traffic will be diverted from Route3 onto Lake Street and then to Main Street to avoid the closed section of Route 3.
Greater Meredith Program officials are appealing for the public's cooperation during the set-up and
display of the fireworks.
In the event that Thursday night's display is not held because of rain it will take place on Friday evening.
