According to the State Fire Marshall's office,

Last year, there were 327 fireworks-related injuries and/or fires reported to the State Fire Marshal’s Office by fire departments and hospital emergency rooms. With retail fireworks stands opening across the state on June 28, this explosive event demonstrates just how important it is to celebrate safely.
The Marshall says to Always remember to use the three Bs of fireworks safety:
  • Be Prepared – Have water nearby and put pets indoors
  • Be Safe – Only adults should light fireworks
  • Be Responsible – Clean up fireworks debris
  • Don’t take any chances, be sure the fireworks you purchase are legal to possess and discharge. Know the dates and times fireworks are allowed in your community. Stay away from high powered illegal explosive devices.
  • Do not alter fireworks or make any type of homemade device. The damage they cause can be devastating and life altering. For more information visit our website
