As you prepare for the 4th of July this weekend, please take a moment to become familiar with the New Jersey State laws on the use of fireworks.
While the state of New Jersey has legalized very specific types of low level firework novelties (snappers, party-poppers and other non-aerial sparkling devices), we would like to remind our residents that most fireworks remain illegal to use without a valid permit. These include many aerial type fireworks and explosives, including but not limited to firecrackers and skyrockets. Persons found to be in possession of illegal fireworks is in violation of NJSA 21:3-2, a petty disorderly persons offense, and subject to penalties including, but not limited to fines up to the amount of $500.00. To maintain the safety and peace of our community, the Lacey Township Police Department will having extra patrols on and will be strictly enforcing the state laws related to illegal fireworks. Please have a safe 4th of July.
