New Jersey Law on Fireworks


There have been several phone calls to the South Brunswick Fire Marshal’s Office and South Brunswick Police about the use of fireworks this year. In June, Governor Chris Christie legalized the sale of non-explosive, non- aerial fireworks.

Tomorrow, October 19th many families will celebrate Diwali. In past years, some celebrants have used fireworks as part of the celebration.

New Jersey law prohibits the use of fireworks which will leave the ground or make loud noise. The law only allows non-aerial fireworks such as hand-held sparklers, ground-based sparklers and novelty fireworks such as poppers and snappers. All other fireworks remain illegal to sell and use in New Jersey, including firecrackers, aerials, sky rockets/bottle rockets, single-tube device with report, reloadable shell device/Roman candles.
