Leave It To The Pros
It is illegal for a private citizen to use, possess, or sell fireworks in Massachusetts OR to purchase them legally elsewhere and then transport them into the Commonwealth. You may be fined up to $100 for possession or use of any fireworks including firecrackers, cherry bombs and sparklers. Sparklers burn at more than 1200°!
According to the Office of the State Fire Marshall, MA Fire Departments reported 944 fires caused by illegal fireworks from 2012-2021 which resulted in 46 injuries and millions of dollars in damages.
In addition to the danger illegal fireworks pose to people and property, they cause major stress to domestic pets. In the last 5 years illegal fireworks have lead to the loss of several dogs and a horse in our area.
Please keep the holiday safe for all and leave the fireworks to the professionals!
