Map: Which New Hampshire Towns Allow Fireworks?

Fireworks are legal to purchase in New Hampshire, but not every town allows residents to use them. 

Each year, the State Fire Marshall asks New Hampshire towns to update their central list of community restrictions around fireworks, and we've used that list to create an easy-to-use map that shows town-level rules.

The Fire Marshal recommends contacting your local fire department for more information, especially in towns where restrictions are noted. 

And be sure to check out the Department of Safety's complete set of rules and permits on fireworks, which includes safety tips.
