Resources for Firework Safety

We work with fire departments all over the valley: Buckeye, Scottsdale, Queen Creek, Gilbert, Phoenix, Peoria, Surprise, and Mesa to insure all the proper permits and laws are followed. Red Hot Fireworks believes in educating the public to use firework safety. We have put together safety information and links below to help educate you with firework safety in Arizona.
