This Independence Day, Montgomery County has zero tolerance for the use of illegal fireworks. If you plan to set up and use some pyrotechnics in your own backyard, expect a knock at the your door from bomb squad investigators. “People look at them as fun, but they’re very dangerous. It is an explosive device, and by law, it is considered an explosive,” says Captain Michael Redding with Montgomery County Fire and Rescue. Fireworks that malfunction and ones that aren’t used or disposed of properly can cause property damage and severe injuries. Poppers are the only firework legal in Montgomery County. Redding is very concerned with residents using homemade fireworks,”hey’re even more dangerous. Remember with fireworks there is no real industry standard.”
