As the Fourth of July weekend approaches, Murfreesboro Fire & Rescue Department and Murfreesboro Police Department are coordinating efforts to keep the citizens and visitors of Murfreesboro safe during the holiday.
MPD will have residential patrols as well as increased traffic enforcement over the holiday weekend. Officers will strictly enforce speeding, seat belt, DUI, and other traffic related laws as well as the City fireworks regulations.
Both MPD and MFRD will be present at the city-sponsored “Celebration Under the Stars” event on July 4 at McKnight Park.
MPD will provide traffic and event control. MFRD will have the Special Events Team tent set up for the day’s festivities and will be able to provide medical assistance if necessary. MFRD’s award-winning Honor Guard will present colors at the opening ceremony and crews will be posted at the site where the fireworks will be launched. MFRD personnel will be on standby during the fireworks show.
