Although fireworks are allowed to be bought and sold in town, they are not allowed to be fired within the town limits.

The Town's Code of Ordinances prohibits setting off fireworks except those containing less than 0.25 grains of explosives such as found in toy cap pistols.  Citizens should contact the Clover PD at 222-9494 to report illegal shooting of fireworks.

 

If you plan to shoot fireworks outside of the Town limits, please consider these safety tips when it comes to buying, using, or enjoying your fireworks:

  • Always buy from an established retail outlet.
  • Never make your own fireworks, and be on the lookout for teens experimenting with home-made fireworks.
  • Have a responsible adult in charge.
  • Never give fireworks to children.
  • Always read and follow the directions on the label.
  • Only use fireworks outdoors.
  • Keep a bucket of water handy.
  • Wear eye protection when lighting a firework.
  • Never have any part of your body over a firework.
  • Light only one firework at a time.
  • Never re-light a "dud" firework.
  • Never shoot fireworks in metal or glass containers.
  • Do not carry fireworks in your pocket.
  • Dispose of fireworks properly by soaking them in water before putting them in a trash can.
