How can I recognize an illegal firework?

Look for a manufacturer’s name on each item or on the box in which they were packaged. Each device should also list instructions for proper use and have cautionary labeling. The manufacturer’s name and cautionary labeling are required by law. Fireworks without this information are probably illegal and, therefore, to be avoided. If you suspect that you have illegal fireworks, contact the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms at 1-888-ATF-BOMB.

Cherry bombs, M-80s, M-100s, and silver salutes are all examples of illegal explosives, sometimes mistakenly referred to by the press as legal, consumer fireworks. These items are extremely dangerous. Fireworks made from mail order kits are illegal and dangerous. NEVER attempt to make your own fireworks or tamper with legal consumer fireworks. Be extremely careful when ordering fireworks over the Internet. If you do use the Internet to obtain fireworks, be sure that you are purchasing from an established, legal vendor. Also, be sure to know all of the local laws concerning the use of fireworks in your state before ordering any items.

What fireworks are legal in my state?

The law is different in each state. For a breakdown of these laws by state, visit for a Directory of State Laws. Please be aware that within each state there may be local restrictions as well. Please contact your local fire or police department for the laws regarding your area.

How many people use illegal fireworks? What can I do to stop the use of illegal fireworks?

The use of illegal fireworks is widespread and comprises a significant percentage of the injuries that are attributed to fireworks every year. The battle against illegal fireworks is being fought on many fronts. You can help prevent the use of these highly dangerous devices by staying away from any item you suspect may be illegal and by reporting the sale or use of any suspicious items to your local police or fire department, or to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms at 1-888-ATF-BOMB.

How many people are injured by fireworks each year?

Although the number of people enjoying fireworks today is significantly greater than ever before, the fireworks industry’s numerous safety campaigns and consumer education programs are paying off, as evidenced by the amazing 44% decrease in the injury rate of fireworks-related accidents. Unfortunately, a large majority of these injuries are the result of the misuse of legal consumer items or the use of illegal explosives.
