Fireworks for the Fourth? Make sure you know the law first!

A lot of people like to buy fireworks for the Fourth of July. 

Right down the street from our office is one of the biggest fireworks companies in northeast Ohio: American Fireworks.

However, before you buy and start setting off fireworks, you should make sure what you are setting off is in compliance with Ohio law.  Not all fireworks bought in Ohio are actually legal to set off in Ohio.

While Ohio law is changing regarding fireworks, it is a multi-year process.   

To help you understand what laws are currently in place, here are some links to various sources on the topic: 

Ohio State Bar Association Fireworks Laws 

Ohio State Fire Marshal FAQs 

Ohio Department of Commerce / State Fire Marshal 2018 Fireworks Guide

Ohio Revised Code (Fireworks)

Please make sure to check with these sources before buying and setting off fireworks.

And please, from our families at VanHo Law to yours, have a safe and happy Fourth of July!
