Illegal Fireworks? Don’t Even Think About Them in Coral Springs

The Coral Springs Police Department will be taking a firm stance on illegal fireworks over the fourth of July weekend and adding additional officers to address them.

The personal use of illegal fireworks in our neighborhoods has prompted the Coral Springs Police Department to take action. In addition to road patrol officers, officers from specialized units will be patrolling the neighborhoods on July 4th confiscating illegal fireworks.

According to WPLG, in 2011 a Coral Springs man was badly injured after a mortar tube exploded after he went to investigate it thinking it was a dud.  “It blew up in his face,” said Coral Springs Fire Captain Mike Moser.

If you are using legal fireworks, please follow these safety tips:

  • Never light fireworks indoors or near dry grass
  • Always have a bucket of water or fire extinguisher nearby
  • Do not wear loose clothing while using fireworks
  • If fireworks do not go off, do not stand over them
  • Supervise children around fireworks at all times

Illegal fireworks are any fireworks that explode or fly in the air. Anyone caught possessing illegal fireworks will have them confiscated on the first offense and cited for a first-degree misdemeanor on the second offense.

    One more reason I’m glad I don’t live there anymore.

  • Again another archaic law that’s never evolved with the times.

    Let the stupid ones get hurt and die, the smart ones will know how to safely detonate these “illegal” fireworks

    The Windings sounds like a war zone from July 1 to about the 6th. Enough.

    The title to this article is almost too humorous to comment. Our neighborhood sounds like a warzone on July 4th. Incredible propaganda.
