2015 Fireworks Safety

If you plan on using fireworks this summer and during the holidays remember Worcester County's law.  Ground based sparkling devices, hand held sparklers and snaps and pops are all that are legal in Maryland and Worcester County.  The Worcester County Fire Marshal's Office will be out in force all weekend and other Law Enforcement Agencies will also be on the lookout for illegal fireworks.  Avoid the fines, up to a $1,000, and visit public fireworks displays listed below or only purchase and use ground based sparkling devices. Transporting fireworks purchased outside of Maryland is against the law.  For a fireworks safety pdf sheet Go here. For a fireworks safety video and additional safety information Click Here.
