Milford Police Urge People to Adhere to Firework Laws
Police are urging Milford residents to be careful and be aware of laws pertaining to fireworks during the July 4 season.
Only fireworks that are non-explosive, non-aerial and have less than 100 grams of pyrotechnic mixture are legal in Connecticut for those ages 16 and up. Items like bottle rockets, fire crackers smoke bombs and “snakes” are illegal to possess and discharge.
Police will be stepping up enforcement of state laws and city ordinances for fireworks.
About 8,600 patients were treated for firework-related injuries in the U.S. in 2010, according to a Milford police press release.
