Do not call police emergency lines with event related questions or to ask directions to the event. The police are not the event coordinators and to do so may prevent someone with an emergency from reaching the police for help.

Remember, personal possession and use of many types of fireworks are still illegal in New Jersey. See the attached poster for guidance on what is permitted and what is illegal. Stay safe and legal and leave the fireworks display to the professionals.
