Like most towns, Yarmouth reports a large spike in illegal firework use around the Fourth of July.
Deputy Chief Steven Xiarhos said that presents a safety danger for residents. Police will be stepping up enforcement for illegal fireworks use over the holiday weekend.
Xiarhos added that anybody who needs a ride home from a Yarmouth bar or restaurant this weekend can get a free ride from town taxi.
That’s a result of the department’s Operation Safe Ride home initiative.
