Celebrate July 4 under a new state law that responds to fireworks dangers, says Adam Trenk, Rose Law Group equine attorney and Vice Mayor Town of Cave Creek


Before you stock up for the Fourth of July, be warned: It is now illegal to use certain fireworks in Arizona.

A new state law goes into effect Tuesday that clearly defines which ones are legal and which ones aren’t.

Sparklers, party poppers and snappers are still legal. Ground spinners, wheels and illuminating torches are only permissible part of the year, while airborne fireworks, like firecrackers, bottle rockets and roman candles, are permanently banned.

Phoenix Fire Inspector Brian Scholl said they’re trying to curb injuries and fires.


Comments by Adam Trenk, Rose Law Group equine attorney and Vice Mayor Town of Cave Creek:

“This state law is an important in helping to combat the unintended consequences of irresponsible behavior. When the sale of fireworks was legalized in Arizona in 2010 I drafted an ordinance to prohibiting the unregulated use of fireworks within the Town’s municipal boundaries in an effort to prevent wildfires and protect our resources and our residents https://cavecreek.civicweb.net/Documents/DocumentList.aspx?ID=10461

“Glad to see that our state government recognized the same issues and is taking steps to rectify it.”
