Fireworks Law, 4th of July

Posted on June 28, 2014 at 8:50 AM by Jeffrey Rudinski


As the 4th of July approaches,  WPD will receive numerous calls regarding fireworks and noise complaints. Under CH 148 S39 of the Massachusetts General Laws fireworks are illegal. The law is very simple.

        A person MAY NOT posses, explode, or posses fireworks for sale

Fireworks are described as "any combustible or explosive composition or substance, or any combination of such compositions or substances, or any other article, which was prepared for the purpose of producing a visible or audible effect by combustion, explosion, deflagration, or detonation"  

Have a GREAT Holiday!!
