"Although it is not generally
known, and many municipalities
are making elaborate preparations
for a noisy celebration of July
Fourth, it is against the law to sell,
give away or explode firecrackers
in the state of Oregon over two and
one-half inches in length and five
eighths inch in, diameter," says A.
H. Averill, state fire marshal.
"Moreover," he stated, "it is unlaw
ful to sell, exchange, barter or give
to any child, under the age of four
teen years, any explosive article,
device or substance containing
more than ten grains of gunpowder.
Violation of these ' statutes carries
a penalty of from $25 to $50."
Furthermore, under the provis
ions of section 42-427 of Oregon
Code 1930, it is unlawful to throw or
explode any firecrackers, or any
other lighted material, on any for
est land, private road, public high
way or railroad right of way in the
state of Oregon during the closed
season of any year, May 15 to Oc
tober 1. Violators of this statute
are subject to a penalty of $75. This
legal inhibition, besdies its fire pre
ventative intent, will also operate
'to protect motorists and others on
the highways of the state from the
annoyance and dangers incident to
the indiscriminate discharge of fire
crackers and torpedoes which have
been the cause of many serious ac
cidents. ' This law also prohibits the
throwing of lighted cigars, cigar
ettes, or matches along the high
ways during the closed season.
The discovery of the anti-firecracker
laws, section 14-918, 14-919,
14-920 and 14-921, Oregon Code 1930,
which have been in effect since
June 15, 1912, will, according to Mr.
Averill, afford relief to many cities,
towns and localities of the state
which have been making inquiry
concerning prohibitory measures of
this character. Particularly so In
those communities, including Port
land, which have stringent anti
fireworks ordinances in effect with
in their boundaries and which have
been powerless, heretofore, to pre
vent the sale of same immediately
without their corporate limits and
the carrying of contraband explo
sives back into the limits where
they are fired in defiance of police
During recent sessions of the leg
islature efforts were made to se
cure enactment of laws regulating
the sale and use of fireworks in this
state but in every case strong lob
bies representing the manufactur
ers and wholesalers of such com
munities, it is said, have succeeded
in defeating them. The 1911 stat
utes have evidently been overlook
ed and forgotten until the compila
tion of the 1930 code brought them
Fire Marshal Averill states that,
with the cooperation of the state
police, the forestry service and
peace officers of the state, rigid ob
servance of these life and fire safe
ty measures will be enforced, where
local regulations do not conflict,
and the public is urged to cooperate
in the interest of fire safety.
