Many Nebraskans make the yearly trip across state lines to find fireworks that give you a bigger bang for your buck! State Fire Marshall Spokesman Ray Nance tells us checkpoints are being set up to catch you. He says going across the border is not worth the trip.
“And many time people are taking these devices and they are putting them into the hands of youth and children that are not adequatelytrained and don’t know not to lean over a tube to light an aerial device off or not to hold something improperly.”
You’ll be fined for bringing the fireworks across the border and receive an additional fine for illegal fireworks.
Nance hopes people will instead choose to attend a public fireworks display put on by professionals.
