Before you buy illegal fireworks………

Before you decide to buy illegal fireworks, the Bend Fire Department asks you to consider the risks: fines, injuries and fires that can wipe out a house or a community. Many things can go wrong when you use illegal fireworks, so make the decision to save yourself a lot of money and trouble.

Illegal fireworks are devices that can fly more than 6 feet horizontally or 12 inches vertically, and that explode or shoot balls of fire.

The Bend Fire Department, and all Central Oregon fire agencies, are asking for the community’s help to make the Fourth a great day to celebrate the birth of our nation with consideration for neighbors and community safety.
