The Dangers of Illegal fireworks

There were 944 fires and explosions involving illegal fireworks in Massachusetts in the past 10 years. These incidents caused 3 civilian injuries, 43 fire service injuries, and millions of dollars in damages.

Massachusetts medical facilities treated 31 people for severe burn injuries from fireworks in the last 10 years. These reports reflect burns covering 5% or more of the victim’s body.

All fireworks are illegal in Massachusetts for private residents. This is true even if you buy them legally in another state. See a great professional fireworks display this year.
