A new fireworks Ordinance was passed in Swatara Township (Harrisburg, PA) on May 8th, 2019. The new Ordinance was created to keep our community members and their neighborhoods safe during the use of consumer fireworks. It will also be used as a tool by Swatara Township Police Officers and Fire Department Chiefs to ensure that fireworks are being utilized properly. The Ordinance mirrors some of the regulations established by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in 2017 (Act 43).
