[ARCHIVED] Webster Police Dept. Reminders Regarding Fireworks

All of us here at the WPD hope for a safe and happy 4th of July for all of our Town residents. 

In preparation for your festivities we would like to advise on the usual HOT topic this time of year, FIREWORKS! The changes made to NYS law regarding fireworks only allows what are considered Sparkling Devices. These are ground based or handheld devices that produce a shower of colored sparks and or a colored flame, audible crackling or whistling noise and smoke. 

The law limits the type, size and construction of Sparkling Devices and requires that these devices must be hand held or mounted on a base or spike and be limited in sizes that range from 1 to 500 grams of pyrotechnic composition. All other types of fireworks are still illegal to possess and set off in NYS with out the proper permissions & permits. 

Therefore, please leave the beautiful displays to the professionals!
