Many families are planning to celebrate the fourth of July with a bang. While consumer-grade fireworks are available for purchase in our region the laws vary by state. In Ohio it is legal to purchase fireworks but illegal to use them. A new bill would change that.

Here to discuss fireworks laws across the Tri-state and safety concerns are Captain Maurice Vassar with the Cincinnati Fire Department; Fire Chief Dan Mathew with the Covington Fire Department; Director of Public Affairs with the Indiana Department of Homeland Security John Erickson and Nancy Rozzi ?president of Rozzi Famous Fireworks.
