Fireworks Safety Tips

 

The City of Oviedo Fire Rescue Department encourages you to practice safety when using Fireworks.  Did you know that any Fireworks that explode or lauch into the air are illegal in the State of Florida and that the Agriculture Exemption you may sign when purchasing Fireworks from retail sales is not appropriate if you use your Fireworks in the improper zoning area such as a residential neighborhood!  Of course, this is information the Fireworks Retail Store fails to share with you at the time of purchase.

Fireworks Statistics

Over 9,800 Injuries Annually in United States

Over 7,000 Injuries Annually Requiring Hospital Treatment

The consequences in Florida are usually confiscation of the Illegal Fireworks, however other penalities may be involved if injuries occur.  In Oviedo, local retail vendors are prohibited from the sale of Fireworks that either explode or launch into the air.
