The dangers of illegal fireworks

Source: National Fire Protection Association (with permission)

Fireworks are dangerous and they are illegal in Massachusetts for anyone without a professional license. The Fourth of July is a busy time for firefighters. They are supervising professional fireworks shows and responding to all types of fires and medical emergencies. There may be fewer fireworks shows this year due to social distancing, but fire departments will still be very busy. In fact, the week of July 4th is one of the busiest times of the year for fires. Firefighters, police officers, and medical professionals ask you to help us during this pandemic, and leave the fireworks to the professionals. Keep your July 4th holiday safe and fun. Stay away from illegal fireworks.
