From the Harwich Fire Department:
Did you know that possession of fireworks in Massachusetts is illegal, even if they were purchased legally elsewhere?
That in the United States more than 250 people a day go to the emergency room with fireworks related injuries in the month surrounding July 4th?
That sparklers burn at approximately 2000 degrees Fahrenheit?
Accidents can happen in seconds and lives can be changed forever when these dangerous recreational explosives are in the hands of everyday citizens.
Please leave the fireworks to the professionals!h
