Firework Q&A

Pennsylvania changed the laws last year governing the use of fireworks. The Bridgeport Police Department is providing the below information which is also posted on the Pa. State Police website. The law also talks about consumer fireworks which is detailed in the American Pyrotechnics Association Standard 87-01. We encourage everyone to review the law and material provided so everyone can stay safe and enjoy the holiday!!

What are the restrictions on where they can be used?

  • They cannot be ignited or discharged on a public or private property without express permission of the property owner.
  • They cannot be discharged from or within a motor vehicle or building.
  • They cannot be discharged toward a motor vehicle or building.
  • They cannot be discharged within 150 feet of an occupied structure.
  • They cannot be discharged while the person is under the influence of alcohol, a controlled substance, or another drug.

Please view the guide from the American Pyrotechnics Association HERE.

New Pedals for Bridgeport Police

Thanks to the generous donations of the Bridgeport Knights of Columbus Holy Family Council No. 3327, and Holy Family Post 1683 Catholic War Veterans, the Bridgeport Police Department was able to replace its 25-year-old inventory of police bicycles with four new ones. The combined contribution of $6,150.00 will allow for a safer ride for the officers and a safer community. The bikes are used for monitoring community events as well as patrolling streets, alleyways and other locations that patrol vehicles cannot patrol as effectively.
