Ask HPD: Fireworks

04/20/2014


We received many questions about the use of fireworks.

Remember, only firecrackers purchased with a permit are legal. All other fireworks, including sparklers and fountains are illegal. Firecrackers can only be sold or purchased from a licensed retailer between Thursday, December 26th through midnight on Tuesday, December 31st.

Firecrackers may be set off between 9:00 p.m. on New Year's Eve to 1:00 a.m. on New Year's Day.

Possession of illegal fireworks pose a great risk to you and the community and the penalty if you are caught is stiff. Anyone found selling, possessing or using illegal fireworks could face five years in jail and a fine of up to $2,000.
