Community Safety & Fireworks Complaints

Posted on: www.cb14brooklyn.com

There have been an unprecedented number of reports of fireworks in our community over the past weeks.  Remember, fireworks are illegal and dangerous.  In addition, and in the words of one of our community residents, “They wake up babies, terrify dogs, trigger those with PTSD, and keep everyone in the neighborhood from being well-rested and healthy during this pandemic – including many essential workers who live here. They have also lit fires and put buildings and people in danger.” Please call 311, 911 or the FDNY Fireworks Enforcement Unit at 718-722-3600 to report fireworks in your neighborhood.

Here are additional public service resources regarding the dangers of fireworks.  Please pass them along to your neighbors and share with the community.
