PUEBLO — Firefighters in Pueblo are being proactive before the Fourth of July. They tell us the holiday is usually one of the busiest times for the department.

The Pueblo Fire Department is handing out free buckets to people to remind them to fill them with water and put used fireworks in them. They say fireworks could reignite if they are put in the trash.

"This is very important to the fire department," said Captain Dan Jones with the Pueblo Fire Department. "It helps with preventing fire, and we are very busy on (the) Fourth of July. We are all over the city responding to calls and with the city working as a team and a group in your neighborhood watching for fireworks safety, it helps us reduce those calls."
