New Fireworks Law
Beginning July 1, 2015, the newly amended House Bill 110 will be effective allowing the sale, purchase and use of many fireworks that were previously prohibited in Georgia. This new law authorizes the use of blank cartridges, firecrackers, torpedoes, skyrockets, bombs, sparklers, Roman candles and similarly constructed combustibles and explosions. As the festivities and celebrations begin with the Fourth of July, the Hinesville Fire Department would like to inform residents of the new law and remind everyone of the importance of safety when using fireworks. If you have any questions after reading the material, please give us a call or use the "Contact Us" form.
