State Fire Marshal Brian Geraci says "The safest way to enjoy fireworks is to attend one of the many public fireworks displays throughout the state." Listed on the State Fire Marshal's website is a list of public fireworks displays throughout the states.

If you insist on using fireworks:
Purchase the fireworks in the location where you intend to discharge them. Check with the local municipality to determine what fireworks are considered legal for use in that area.
Read and follow label warnings and instructions.
Do not allow small children to use fireworks.
Do not consume alcoholic beverages while using fireworks.
Have a bucket of water or hose available.
Fully extinguish remains of fireworks in water before disposal.

Please make safety your #1 priority so everyone can enjoy the holiday!
