Illegal fireworks cause:
- Trauma to many of our returning veterans suffering the effects of their service to our Country
- Property loss from fires
- Trauma and anxiety to children and animals
- Environmental pollution, measure-able in both air and noise
I appreciate your support and hope you know that at PF&R, our goal is to make the 4th of July safe and enjoyable for all. Please help keep your neighborhood safe and pleasant by not bringing illegal fireworks to Oregon, and educating the Oregonians you know about the law (and the dangers) before they buy illegal fireworks.
