A Fire Safe Independence Day

(Franklin) — The Fourth of July is a day we spend celebrating America’s independence, but we should also keep fire safety in mind.

Agent Terry Harper of State Farm Insurance Agency and the Georgia Arson Control Board would like to wish Heard Countians a happy Independence Day and would ask they remain safe during the festivities.

According to Harper, “The Fourth of July is a time for Americans to remember those who gave their lives to protect our freedom. While we get together to remember these individuals, we should also take the proper precautions needed for a safe Independence Day.”

The Georgia Arson Control Program, Inc. (GAC) was formed in January of 1979 by property and casualty insurers writing business in Georgia.

GAC, Georgia Department of Insurance and Safety Fire, and state/local law enforcement agencies, established an ARSON HOTLINE 1-800-282-5804.

A reward fund was initiated from which monetary rewards are given to individuals who come forward with information that results in the arrest and conviction of arsonists.
