Statistics Reveal Fires Caused by the Improper Use of Fireworks

Independence Day is a time to celebrate our freedoms.  

Personal fireworks require personal responsibility.  Remember the three B's of fireworks safety: 

  • Be Prepared-Have water nearby and put pets indoors,
  • Be Safe-Only adults should light fireworks, and
  • Be Responsible-clean up fireworks debris.

 

The Office of the State Fire Marshal is committed to promoting injury prevention and fire safety during the celebrations of Independence Day and New Years when fireworks are often used. Our mission is to implement a comprehensive and effective educational and enforcement program for fireworks injury prevention and fire safety.
