Lombard Fire Department warns residents of burns and injuries associated with firework useFireworks cause thousands of burns and eye injuries each year, to users and bystanders alike. The Lombard Fire Department reminds residents that fireworks are not toys, but devices designed to reach high temperatures, burn, spark, explode and launch. They are unpredictable by nature and dangerous for non-professional users.
The discharging of fireworks, such as firecrackers, bottle rockets and Roman candles, are not allowed in Illinois under state regulations, and is a violation of state law and Village ordinances. Novelty fireworks, such as snakes, sparklers, and party-poppers are not regulated by the state.
Sparklers are legal, however they are extremely dangerous. Common sparklers burn at temperatures of up to 1,200 degrees Fahrenheit and remain extremely hot long after the sparks have ceased. Many children are injured each year by sparklers and children playing with novelty fireworks must be closely supervised by adults to prevent injury.
Anyone with questions about fireworks safety or regulations in the Village of Lombard please call Fire Marshall Perry Johnson at (630)873-4576.
