Excellent information from our friends at the Tiverton Police Dept.

Excellent information from our friends at the Tiverton Police Dept.

Members of the Tiverton Police Department are just as patriotic as our amazing residents, some of our officers are not only veterans, some are still actively serving our country. With that said we wanted to send a reminder: while celebrating your patriotism make sure what you're lighting off is legal in Rhode Island. Here in the Ocean State, only certain ground fireworks and handheld sparklers are allowed.

All display and aerial fireworks are BANNED! In other words, firecrackers, roman candles and fireworks that shoot into the air, explode, or make a large bang are not allowed. The only type of fireworks allowed are the kind that lets off a shower of sparks, whistles, makes crackling noises and produces smoke. These are fireworks that are acceptable as long as they don't make a loud "gunshot" sound. Also OK: any handheld sparkler, a perennial holiday favorite among children.

Anyone caught selling, possessing or using banned fireworks are in violation of RIGL: 11-13-1 and could face a fine of up to $1,000, up to a year of prison time, or both.

Here are some examples of what is allowed and what is not:

Allowed-

Ground-based sparklers
Hand-held sparklers
Flitter sparklers
Wheel spinners
Party poppers
Snappers
Smoke "bombs"
Snakes
Glow worms
Illuminating torches

Banned-

Firecrackers
Rockets
Roman candles
Mortars
Anything that launches into the air or makes a loud "bang"

To report illegal firework use, don't call 911, instead, call our police department's non-emergency phone number 401-625-6717.

We would like to wish everyone a Happy and Safe 4th of July!

At approximately, 3:30pm firefighters were dispatched to Ferreira Dr. for a package in a UPS truck leaking an unknown liquid. The leaking fluid caused the driver to become ill and be transported to a local hospital. The regional hazmat team was notified and hazmat techs responded from East Providence Fire Department, North Kingstown Fire Department, and Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management. There is no hazard to anyone in the area.

Thanks for helping out today no job too big or too small! My mother in law & I were very appreciative!!👍
I want to thank the Tiverton physicians and Tiverton rescue. I was in need of medical attention today due to a serious reaction to a Bee sting. Couldn’t ask for a more professional group. I was in trouble and they were right there to help. Tiverton is very lucky to have you! Thanks again for taking such excellent care of me. I hate to think what would have happened without you all!
