Only sparklers are legal in the State of Connecticut. Sparklers are NON-EXPLOSIVE, NON-AERIAL devices that contain less than 100 grams of pyrotechnic mixture. Sparklers can only be purchased and legally used in Connecticut by persons age 16 or older.   It is illegal to transport fireworks into Connecticut which have been privately purchased from out of state.

Novelty items such as party poppers, snakes, smoke devices and anything that emits a flame are not legal for private use in Connecticut. 

If you are going to use items purchased legally in Connecticut, we ask that you do it safely.  Please have water or a fire extinguisher readily available.  Fireworks usage by the general public has resulted in property damage, injury and sometimes even loss of life.

The safest was to enjoy a fireworks celebration is to attend a professional display.

If you have any questions regarding fireworks, please contact your local Fire Marshal’s Office.
