Likely to be a long night of sirens, pops, booms …

Though a couple citywide-media articles implied police wouldn’t really go around dealing with fireworks calls, what we’re hearing on the scanner is a different story- plenty of them around the city, and it sounds like officers are being dispatched in some cases. Fire crews are busy too; Engine 37 (from 35th SW) just went to an “illegal burn” call at California/Willow south of Morgan Junction, reportedly “guys drinking and having a bonfire in the front yard.” We drove Harbor/Alki Aves just after dusk, noting the RVs setting up in prime streetside viewing spots in advance of tomorrow, and seeing bottle rockets bursting in air from the neighborhoods south of the beach. Here’s the live 911 link if you don’t already have it bookmarked and want to check what you’re hearing.

    Everyone, please keep a close watch on your pets. The fireworks are very frightening to most animals. It’s always sad to read “lost pet” notices after July 4. Pets in a panic could dash out the door (or fly out a window) in the blink of an eye.

Sorry, comment time is over.
