Fireworks fall into two general categories: display fireworks, also known as 1.3G and consumer fireworks, 1.4G. In the United States, the Federal government has assigned regulation of fireworks laws to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF). Each branch has different areas of responsibility for fireworks laws.

Most of us associate fireworks with the 4th of July and New Year’s celebrations. We have come to expect a fireworks show at concerts, during the Super Bowl and at other festive events. And while most of us have some personal experience with fireworks, whether it is a sparkler, a firecracker, or a larger cake, the majority of us have no idea about the history of fireworks or why they have come to be so closely connected with celebrations.

When I hear the word “firecracker”, I automatically think of the Fourth of July and other celebrations where noisemakers make everything more exciting. The loud bang and pop, the smell of smoke in the air, and the pieces of paper left over in the aftermath remind me of fun times spent with friends and family.
Simply put, firecrackers are pyrotechnic composition wrapped in paper or plastic with a fuse. When the fuse is lit, the heat causes the compounds to react, creating pressure that eventually explodes. The loud bang is the result of the wrapper being blown apart.
