Avondale reminds retailers, residents about fireworks rules

City of Avondale Fire Department extends a reminder to residents and businesses regarding the rules and regulations for the sale and use of consumer fireworks. The sale and use of consumer fireworks is permitted in Avondale only during the periods of May 20 – July 6 and December 10 – January 3 of each year.  

Avondale’s ordinance further prohibits the sale of fireworks to children under the age of 16. The sale or use of any illegal fireworks in the city is subject to a fine of $1000 for each violation.  

Local public safety officials suggest leaving the fireworks to the professionals.  According to the National Fire Protection Association, fireworks have been one of the leading causes of injuries serious enough to require hospital emergency room treatment. Fireworks can result in severe burns, fractures, or scars or even death or disfigurement that can last a lifetime. The thousands of serious injuries each year typically harm the eyes, head, or hands, and are mostly reported in states where fireworks are legal.  Even sparklers, which are considered by many to be harmless, reach temperatures of more than 1,000° F.
