Setting off illegal fireworks could result in these fireworks being confiscated and perhaps criminal sanctions. Any fireworks that explode or fly in the air are illegal. Airborne fireworks run the risk of damaging property or causing serious injury to users.

As for legal fireworks, please follow these tips to ensure safety:
• Light fireworks only on non-flammable paved surfaces on your own property.
• Do not wear loose clothing and keep hair pulled back while using fireworks.
• Stand several feet away from lighted fireworks.
• If fireworks do not go off, do not stand over them.
• Always have a bucket of water or fire extinguisher nearby.
• Supervise children around fireworks at all times.

Police recommend attending a professional fireworks display instead.
