The Dare County Sheriff’s Office wishes the public a safe, wonderful July 4th.

Deputies would like to remind residents and tourists that the state of North Carolina prohibits the possession of any pyrotechnics which launch or propel into the air, or which explode, making a sound or “report.”

Sparklers, fountains, and ground displays are allowed – only with adult supervision and when exercising extreme caution and fire prevention.

Fireworks are illegal in Dare County, including all towns and villages.
