June 15, 2016: People have been celebrating special events with fireworks for hundreds of years. However, since the American Revolutionary War and the Declaration of Independence, Americans have adopted the practice to celebrate the Fourth of July.
Since then, fireworks technology has become much more sophisticated and accessible. Consumers all over the country can enjoy fireworks relatively freely. Naturally, there are some exceptions to this freedom. Some states and localities restrict firework use completely or in part.
The reason behind these restrictions are usually safety-related. The restrictions are there for a good reason. More than 200 people end up in the emergency room around the Fourth of July.
