Know Where Fireworks Are Legal to Use

Fire officials in New Mexico would like everyone to enjoy and celebrate the holiday safely.  It’s important to know that fireworks may be legal to buy in New Mexico but are not legal to use everywhere in the state.

Know Before You Go:

  • Check with local authorities for legal and safe places to use fireworks.
  • Never use fireworks in or near dry vegetation.
  • If you use fireworks, do not discard directly into the trash.  Soak used fireworks in a bucket of water to remove all heat.
  • Supervise children closely. Sparklers burn at 1200°F and cause 16% of fireworks injuries (Source: NFPA).

Consider leaving fireworks to the professionals! Attend a fireworks display and avoid all risk.
