Safe Fourth equals happy holiday
July 1, 2015 – Flagler County officials want to remind residents that a safe holiday is a happy holiday.

“The Fourth of July is a time for celebration,” County Administrator Craig Coffey said. “We don’t want anything to interfere with the good time we are having with family and friends.”

Back-to-back fireworks are a tradition in Flagler County with the City of Palm Coast hosting a fireworks celebration at 9 p.m. July 3 in Town Center called “Fireworks in the Park.” The City of Flagler Beach hosts its fireworks celebration at 9:15 p.m. July 4 at The Pier.

Public safety is the main concern. Users of social media like Facebook and Twitter will be able to search #FlaglerBeach4th for any official posts about safety concerns, including weather.

"Should we experience bad weather, I recommend that residents shelter in their cars until the storm passes," said Kevin Guthrie, Flagler County Public Safety Emergency Manager.

Also remember to stay hydrated and use sunscreen.

The Flagler Beach Police Department recommends that visitors attending the event park in relation to where they need to travel after the fireworks have concluded. Traffic on State Road A1A and State Road 100 will be restricted afterwards and police will be assigned to the intersection.

Traffic southbound on State Road A1A will be forced west onto State Road 100 and will be required to travel west over bridge. Traffic heading northbound on State Road A1A will have the option to continue north in the east traffic lane, while those wishing to travel west on State Road 100 may turn left from the left-turn lane.

Those traveling eastbound on State Road 100 will experience delays after the fireworks to accommodate event traffic.
