Firework Safety Reminders
Most fireworks are illegal in Illinois, and all fireworks (including sparklers) are dangerous. If you choose to purchase fireworks over state lines and detonate them in Illinois, you are not only putting yourself in danger and violating the law, you can also be held liable for damage or injuries that may occur.
We understand that due to the COVID-19 pandemic and cancellation fireworks displays throughout the state, that residents may experience increased occurrences of illegal firework use at residential homes in their neighborhoods. As Lombard Police and Fire continue to respond to those in need during the COVID-19 pandemic, you can show your support to first responders by NOT utilizing illegal fireworks this holiday.
