(WIVB) — The Fourth of July will be here in no time, and officials are making sure everyone celebrating the holiday does it safely.
A safety table is on display at all Phantom Fireworks locations.
Every customer receives some sort of safety pamphlet with the dos and don’ts of setting off fireworks when they make a purchase.
Most fireworks are illegal to use here in New York State, but sparkling devices are allowed.
Before you make a purchase, fireworks retailers have an important message.
“You always want to have a source of water with you,” Scott Weigle, with Phantom Fireworks said.
The stores and pop-up shops carry rockets, roman candles and sparklers.
You must be 18 years or older to purchase fireworks.
