6/30/2011 - Fireworks Safety and the Law

The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office is urging Palm Beach County residents to think about safety as they make plans to celebrate the Fourth of July.

Every year thousands of people and animals are killed or critically injured by fireworks. Fireworks can result in severe burns, scars and disfigurement that can last a life-time, for that reason, fireworks are illegal to use without a permit.

If it launches or explodes, as those in the following list, it's illegal.

  • Common Bottle Rockets
  • Firecrackers (Rolls)
  • Standard Fireworks
  • M80’s with Mortar
  • M80’s
  • Projectile Fireworks
  • Launchable Rockets with Stands

Follow these precautions to celebrate safely:

  • Use sparklers and other “legal” novelties on a flat, hard surface. Do not light them on grass.
  • Use sparklers in an open area. Keep children and pets at least 30 feet away from all ignited fireworks.
  • Light only one item at a time and never attempt to re-light a dud.
  • Don’t purchase or use any unwrapped items or items that may have been tampered with.
  • Keep a fire extinguisher or water hose on hand for emergencies.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office will be enforcing the use of illegal fire-works. Using fireworks illegally is a first degree misdemeanor punishable by up to one year in jail and a $1,000 fine.
