With the 4th of July quickly approaching, Cobb County Police Department feels it is important to educate everybody about HB110. This is the recently passed “Fireworks Law” which takes effect July 1, 2015. HB 110 allows for the sale of fireworks in Georgia. This includes statewide sales and cannot be restricted by local governments and their jurisdictions. According to the House Bill, the term “Consumer Fireworks means any small fireworks devices containing restricted amounts of pyrotechnic composition, designed primarily to produce visible or audible effects by combustion, that comply with the construction, chemical composition, and labeling regulations of the United States Consumer Product Safety and additionally shall mean Roman candles.”
Usage of Fireworks
• Fireworks can be used daily between the hours or 10:00 a.m. and midnight. On January 1, July 3, July 4 and December 31, fireworks can be used from 10:00 a.m. through 2:00 a.m.
• Fireworks cannot be exploded within 100 yards of a nuclear power facility or a gas station, or a facility that refines, processes, or blends gasoline.
