Fireworks safety information

The Charleston Fire Department asked us to pass along this information in light of the Fourth of July holiday tomorrow:

“The Charleston Fire Department would like to remind citizens about the rules and regulations regarding fireworks and provide safety tips and information for a safe and enjoyable Fourth of July holiday. City Ordinance Sec. 13-191 prohibits the use, sale, possession, discharge of any fireworks within the City of Charleston. Smaller items such as sparklers, snap-pops, or similar are not regulated as fireworks materials and are permissible. Fireworks displays must be conducted by a licensed operator with an approved permit.”
