Public Safety Officials Warn Of Fireworks Dangers

Jul 1, 2014

It is a few days before the Fourth of July and Massachusetts public safety officials have issued the annual warning about fireworks. 

Fireworks are illegal in Massachusetts except for use by licensed professionals. Springfield Fire Marshall David  Rivera said pyrotechnics should never be  in the hands of amateurs.

MassDot  message boards along  interstate highways will remind motorists that it is illegal to transport fireworks into Massachusetts that were purchased legally in other states.
