Happy 4th of July!

From 2005-2014, there have been 785 major fire and explosion incidents involving illegal fireworks reported to the Massachusetts Fire Incident Reporting System (MFIRS).  In this same time, 49 people were treated at Massachusetts emergency rooms for severe burn injuries from fireworks (burns covering 5% or more of the body) according to the Massachusetts Burn Reporting System (M-BIRS). Nearly two-thirds of these victims were children and youths under the age of 25.

MGL Chapter 148, S. 39 states that it is illegal for private citizens to use, possess, or sell fireworks in Massachusetts, or to purchase them legally elsewhere and then transport them into the state. The law prohibits any article designed to produce a visible or audible effect. The possession, use, and cause to explode fireworks is punishable by a $100 fine, and confiscation of the fireworks.

Any violator shall be issued a Massachusetts Uniform Citation charging the violator with Ch 148 S. 39, possession of fireworks, and fined $100. The seizure of fireworks is mandatory.

The Truro Police Department would like everyone to have a fun, safe 4th of July so please, enjoy the many displays of fireworks supervised by local fire departments and conducted by licensed professionals.

 

 

DONATION CALLS

 

A resident of Truro reported to us today that she received a call from someone identifying themselves as a member of the Truro Police Department and asked for a donation. PLEASE be aware that the Truro Police Association never conducts telephone or door to door fundraising, nor do we contract with any services that do so. A donation letter sent out in February is the only way we raise money for the projects we do.

However,

The Massachusetts Police Association IS soliciting donations by phone. They are conducting their fundraiser and asking for support by purchasing tickets to a baseball clinic. This is a legitimate fundraiser. It has no affiliation with the Truro Police Association.
