A safety message from the Concord Fire Department
While fireworks are one of the things we enjoy most about the Fourth of July, they are also one of the greatest safety concerns. Fireworks can cause serious injuries, including burns, lacerations, eye injuries, vision loss, dismemberment, and even death. Sadly, children and young adults are the majority of victims of fireworks accidents requiring emergency room treatment. Many young children suffer burns from sparklers, which are often mistakenly considered safe for kids. You can help make the holiday safe for your family and friends by ensuring that fireworks are used in a legal and appropriate manner.

The State of North Carolina and the City of Concord only allow the sale or use of certain “permissible” fireworks that do not explode, rise in the air, travel laterally on the ground, or fire projectiles into the air. These permissible fireworks may only be sold to those 16 years of age or older, and include sparklers, fountains, smoke devices, snake and glow worms, trick noisemakers such as string poppers or snappers, and toy pistol caps. These are distinguishable from other fireworks such as firecrackers, Roman candles, missiles, bottle rockets, and shells, which are not legal in North Carolina. Be responsible and safe while enjoying time spent with family and friends! For more information about Fireworks safety, contact the Fire Department at 704-920-5517.

Hartsell Recreation Center reopening celebration set for June 29
City of Concord officials will gather with the Silver Hill community and members of the general public at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, June 29 to celebrate the renovation and reopening of Hartsell Recreation Center. Hartsell was closed between August 12, 2016 and June 18, 2017 for an extensive, $1.8 million renovation.

The facility was the historical site of Hartsell High School’s gym and classrooms, and was purchased by the City in 1994 for use by the Parks and Recreation Department. In addition to an updated look and better ADA accessibility compliance, the Center now has renovated exercise, fitness, and multi-purpose rooms available to the public.

This project is the latest in a series of capital improvements to the City's Parks and Recreation facilities. In recent years, major renovations have been completed at the Academy and Logan Centers, along with new outdoor recreation options such as the Hector H. Henry II, Greenway and the Weddington Road Bark Park. The City Council continues to focus on demand for improved recreation facilities as adopted in the Parks and Recreation Comprehensive Master Plan, adopted in December, 2016. For more information, contact the Parks and Recreation Department at 704-920-5600.

She will be missed greatly in Midland and throughout Cabarrus County."

How to help your dogs be good neighbors
We encourage dog owners to help their canine family members be excellent neighbors that enrich families and communities. Cabarrus County law requires dogs to be on a leash any time they are not on their owner’s property. To keep your dog safe—even if your dog can be controlled without one—it’s necessary to keep him or her on a leash any time your dog is outdoors and not inside a fence. Click here to read the Cabarrus County animal restraint ordinance.

Dog owners have the opportunity to protect other animals - aquatic wildlife like fish, crayfish, and tadpoles –just by picking up their dog’s waste. Keeping the lawn and sidewalk clean is just one benefit to picking up after your dog. Pet waste left on the ground is carried into local bodies of water via the storm drainage system, and because it contains nitrogen and phosphorus, it causes oxygen depletion in our waterways. Pet waste also contains E. coli bacteria which can make waters unsafe for swimming. Learn more at concordnc.gov/stormwater.

Help Cabarrus play: propose recreation matching incentive grant projects through June 9
Do you have an idea for something FUN but lack the FUNds? The Cabarrus County Active Living and Parks Department is accepting applications for a matching incentive grant to assist in improving or adding to recreation facilities located on Cabarrus County property. The deadline for submission is June 9. Find out more about this opportunity at cabarruscounty.us.
