Traveling Safely With Fireworks

Fireworks don't fly. But here are some tips for getting your fireworks home safely in your personal vehicle.

Fireworks present a number of hazards, including explosivity and flammability, and are not accepted as either checked or carry-on baggage on commercial airliners. If you're transporting fireworks for your own use, in your own vehicle, remember these tips:

  • Never attempt to light a firework or fuse within your vehicle, either as a driver or a passenger.
  • Never smoke near or while handling fireworks.
  • Transport fireworks in a sparkproof container, such as a cardboard box. Firework assortments are typically packaged in sparkproof materials.
  • Transport fireworks in the trunk of your vehicle not in the passenger compartment.
  • If driving a van or other vehicle, without a trunk, always ensure fireworks are kept out of direct sunlight.
