HPD NEWS RELEASE
Its that time of year again. Time to celebrate our nation in the loudest way possible, fireworks. The Henderson Police Department wants everyone to enjoy the July 4th holiday by keeping some of the following things in mind. The City of Henderson has Ordinances concerning the use of fireworks within the city limits (see Sec. 16-83). Here’s a list of the ones that we deal with the most (read the ordinance for exact wording):
1. Fireworks must be handled, stored, used, possessed, and sold in accordance with all applicable federal, state, and local law.
2. Fireworks may be used, ignited, fired, or exploded between 10 am and 10 pm except on July 3rd and 4th when they can be used, ignited, fired or exploded between 10 am – midnight.
3. No person may use, ignite, fire or explode any fireworks if they are under the age of 18, are within 200 feet of any structure, motor vehicle (whether operational or non-operational), or any other person.
Please be aware of your neighbors. Do not allow your fireworks to land on their property and keep in mind that not everyone gets to take off work on the holiday. Be safe and Happy 4th of July.
