As the July 4th holiday approaches, the shooting of fireworks to celebrate our country’s independence will commence. It is the responsibility of everyone to be safe during this time. Injures and fires occur quite frequently during this time and everyone needs to be extra careful. The State of New Jersey Division of Fire Safety has laws that govern the type and use of fireworks. These laws do not permit the use of aerial fireworks and only ground based fireworks. Please adhere to these laws.
