During the holiday, the Coral Springs Police Department will be making it a priority to monitor the use of fireworks throughout our neighborhoods.
Please keep in mind that any firework that explodes or flies in the air is illegal. Anyone caught possessing illegal fireworks will have them confiscated. Remember that setting off illegal fireworks could result in criminal charges.
As for legal fireworks, please follow these safety tips to ensure the well-being of your loved ones:
• Never light fireworks indoors or near dry grass.
• Always have a bucket of water or fire extinguisher nearby.
• Do not wear loose clothing while using fireworks.
• Stand several feet away from lighted fireworks.
• If fireworks do not go off, do not stand over them.
• Supervise children around fireworks at all times.
To report illegal fireworks, please call the Police Department’s non-emergency line at 954-344-1800.
