Consumer fireworks are regulated by the State. Here are the specific state regulations:
They cannot be ignited or discharged on a public or private property without express permission of the property owner.
They cannot be discharged from or within a motor vehicle or building.
They cannot be discharged toward a motor vehicle or building.
They cannot be discharged within 150 feet of an occupied structure, whether or not a person is actually present.
They cannot be discharged while the person is under the influence of alcohol, a controlled substance, or another drug.
Fireworks cannot be set off within 150 feet of a house or a commercial building, even if people aren’t in the building. That’s ½ the size of a football field.
Fireworks should not be handled by someone under the influence.
Be safe and have a wonderful weekend!
