Of course, there's a subtle message here....

"Sure, we're in a severe draught, we're already battling two large fires in the county, but we're going to be really careful and shoot off those fireworks anyway......SO YOU CAN TOO!"

I think a far better message would have been conveyed by saying, "Listen, we cannot overestimate the fire danger in Eastern North Carolina. It's so bad that even WE are cancelling the fireworks show. If you are going to skip setting off fireworks any year, this is the one to skip. Something as simple as a dropped sparkler could mean that you and your neighbors will be homeless."
