Along with being illegal in Massachusetts, fireworks pose public health and safety threats. Fireworks can start fires, which can spread quickly through our densely populated neighborhoods. The noise from fireworks can also be traumatizing to those with post-traumatic stress disorder and can be very upsetting to animals. This 4th of July weekend – and throughout the summer – we’re reminding everyone to be a good neighbor and not set off fireworks.
