Fireworks: What’s legal, what’s not

June 28. Davidson Police have put out a press release about fireworks in advance of Independence Day next week. Every year more than 50,000 fires are caused by fireworks and close to 11,000 people are treated for injuries related to fireworks.

As per the North Carolina General Statute, explosive fireworks are prohibited for personal use.

Legal: Sparklers, glow worms or snakes, trick noisemakers, fountains, dipped sticks, illuminating devices, noisemakers, tube devices, and snappers.

Illegal: If it flies up in the air and explodes, including firecrackers, bottle rockets, M-80s, roman candles, mortars, etc., then it is illegal in the state of North Carolina.

More pets go missing on Independence Day than on any other day of the year. Make sure your pet’s ID tags are up to date/securely fastened to the collar. Consider microchipping your pets, but if they already are, make sure the information is up to date. Keep your pets inside if they fear loud noises. Take a current photo of cats, dogs, and horses – just in case.
