Stay Safe this July 4th

The Chandler Police Department would like to remind everyone that while buying and selling fireworks in the City of Chandler is legal, setting them off inside the City limits may not be.  Persons found responsible for setting off illegal fireworks will be subject to a civil citation.   “Consumer fireworks do not go into the air, or explode. Some types of consumer fireworks are now legal in Arizona to sell to people age 16 and older; however, cities can restrict their use.   These fireworks are restricted to private property use only.

The popular Novelty fireworks are not regulated, and can be sold and used in Chandler. These include small sparklers, smoke devices, snakes, party poppers, and other similar types.

Also, remember to watch your pets this July 4th.  Keep pets inside or contained in a yard during firework displays.  Animals often become startled from the fireworks and may run out of an unsecured yard.

Attached to this email/ release is a chart to help you identify what is legal and what is not legal for use.

Have a safe and Happy July 4th!
