Fireworks Safety Tips and 2016 Public Firework Displays - As July 4th festivities approach, the Loudoun County Fire Marshal’s Office wants you to begin planning for a safe holiday. Did you know more fires are reported on July 4th than any other day of the year in the US? Nearly half of these fires are caused by fireworks. Did you know most injuries that occur while using consumer fireworks are to children and teens between the ages of 10 and 14? Safely enjoy your holiday and the fireworks with these safety tips. Permissible fireworks for personal use may be purchased at stands throughout the county, and may only be used on private property with the consent of the owner. To protect yourself and others, only buy fireworks from permitted stands in Loudoun County. These fireworks have been tested and approved. A list of these stands is listed here. Fireworks sales are permitted between June 15 and July 15. To report an emergency, please call 911.  For non-emergency concerns related to the use or storage of fireworks, contact the Loudoun County Fire Marshall at 703-737-8600.
