Use caution when buying, using fireworks

June 25, 2013

By Staff

Washington state residents are not free to purchase fireworks online, according to a press release from the Washington State Patrol.

In Washington state, fireworks must be purchased from a licensed retail fireworks stand during the legal sales period. Orders for fireworks cannot be placed over the Internet or posted on websites such as craigslist.

Personal fireworks require personal responsibility. When setting off fireworks, be prepared, have water nearby and put pets indoors. Only adults should light fireworks, and be responsible enough to clean up firework debris after enjoying them.
