Happy Fourth of July!

As Independence Day quickly approaches us, MD Life Safety would like to encourage all Marylanders to watch a professional, public fireworks display.

If you still wish to use fireworks, please keep the following regulations in mind:

(Note: These regulations are following Counties, please check your local town's regulations as well.)

  • In Maryland, approved fireworks include Ground Based Sparking Devices, Gold-labeled sparklers, and Novelty Items such as "Snap 'n' Pop", "Black Snakes", and "Party Poppers".

  • Baltimore City, Prince George's County, and Montgomery County have banned ALL forms of fireworks, sparklers, and novelties.

  • Ocean City, Howard County, and Harford County have banned ALL Ground Based Sparkling Devices.

If you choose to use fireworks, keep these safety tips in mind:

  • Keep a bucket of water nearby, incase fireworks get out of control.

  • Wait for fireworks to burn out completely before cleaning it up.

  • Do not wear loose fitting clothing while using fireworks.

  • Do not set fireworks off on grass, inside, or on a flammable structure.

  • Keep back from lit fireworks. If the firework does not go off, put it out with water and dispose of it.

  • Point houses away from houses, buildings, and other flammable structures.

  • Supervise children and animals during fireworks.

  • Be courteous of others when considering timing of your fireworks.

  • Do not use fireworks under the influence of alcohol.

  • Read warning labels and follow all instructions.

Fireworks are dangerous and can get out of control very quickly. Please follow the tips above or enjoy a public display to enjoy your holiday with a low risk of injury!

Thank you from all of us here at MD Life Safety.

Happy Fourth of July!
