Fireworks Legal Again In Georgia

Just in time for New Year’s, or perhaps for overly festive Christmas dinners, it’s OK again to blow up fireworks as part of your holiday festivities.

On November 14th, the Governor issued an executive order banning the use of fireworks due to excessive drought in much of Georgia. Since then, rains have finally begun to fall, and the State Fire Marshall and Insurance Commissioner has decided that it’s safe to approve across the board insurance hikes resume the use of fireworks.

Marshall is my cousin. Georgia has a fire marshal.

Is it true that the South did not shoot fireworks for July 4th for many years but only shot them for New Year’s Eve?


Half the state is still in extreme drought but don’t let me be a Scrooge.
