Happy Fourth of July! (Saturday, July 4, 2020)

The Tatum Housing & Beckville Housing Authorities wish you and your family a safe and exciting 4th of July holiday weekend. The 4th of July holiday is a celebration of our becoming independent as a country on July 4, 1776. To learn more about Independence Day history from PBS.org, click here.

Before you celebrate remember that fireworks can pose a fire and safety hazard to those who use them. Use caution when shooting fireworks, and be sure to follow these recommended safety tips:

  • Read cautionary labels and performance descriptions before lighting a firework
  • Never give fireworks to children
  • Wear safety glasses when shooting fireworks
  • Use the fireworks outdoors, away from buildings and vehicles
  • Dispose of fireworks safely (wet them down and place them in a metal trash can until the next day)

For anyone who is traveling this 4th of July weekend, remember to always wear your seat belt and never drink and drive - instead, call a designated driver to get you home safely. Not only do you risk your life when you drive impaired, you are putting the other drivers you share the roadway with at risk, too.

The Tatum Housing & Beckville Housing Authorities wish everyone a fun and safe 4th of July weekend!

Susan Mooney, Executive Director
