Stay Safe this 4th of July

A guest post by ​Kendall Dapprich, Strafford County Public Health Network

Although it is legal for adults over the age of 21 to purchase and possess fireworks in New Hampshire, fireworks can still be dangerous. The safest way to enjoy fireworks this 4th of July is to attend a professional display. If you choose to celebrate the holiday with fireworks, keep in mind:

Be Prepared before lighting fireworks.

Be Safe when lighting fireworks.

Be Responsible when finished.

Your town may require a permit to use fireworks. Check the link below to see if your town requires a permit. If they do, contact your local city hall or fire department to get a permit.
