Of course, I hope that you are visiting us today to take advantage the ability to buy fireworks online from a local Provo, Utah source at our low prices. However, I also hope that you are willing to do a little reading on Fireworks Safety.
One of the key items regarding fireworks safety is knowing what you are buying. I read a great article about this last year, and they took a topic that usually centers around being careful, reading instructions etc., and put a new spin on it.
While being careful and reading instructions are of paramount importance, the main focuses of this article is to be wary about where and who you buy fireworks from. It is imperative that you purchase from a licensed source - be it a store, stand, tent or this website. Do not buy from a post on KSL or Craigslist, or from the back of some guy's van. You need to know what you are buying and that it is safe.
Professional 1.3G fireworks can seriously injure you - especially if you aren't expecting them.
Consumer fireworks, regulated by the Consumer Product Safety Commission, are packaged in bright colors and have safety warnings on the package. The packaging sets forth the country of origin, which is normally China. Typical consumer fireworks include fountains, cones, sparklers, firecrackers, rockets and multi-tube aerial devices. This is all we sell here at ProvoFireworks.com.
Illegal explosives are often unpackaged and wrapped in brown paper. They are unlikely to have any safety warnings or place of manufacture. Many of them are handmade in basements or illicit factories without any quality control. They go by names such as M-80, Quarter Stick or Cherry Bombs. If someone approaches you to sell one of these illegal explosives, politely decline - it simply isn't worth it!
Professional 1.3G fireworks are legal but only in the hands of a licensed, trained pyro-technician. These devices are very different than consumer fireworks, are extremely powerful and are not meant for consumer use.
