Police Chief Eldredge and Fire Chief Moran would like to take this opportunity to remind those living and visiting Brewster that Massachusetts General Laws prohibit citizens from using, possessing, or selling fireworks. Local law prohibits beach fires on any Town owned beaches. Beach fires are permitted on private and association owned beaches with a permit.
Illegal firework use and unpermitted fires have caused serious injuries and also serious fires throughout the nation and state. In addition to fires and injuries, fireworks can be disruptive to other residents, some military veterans, and pets. Please be a good neighbor and leave the fireworks to the professionals.
With many people enjoying the beaches, trails, and other amenities in Brewster this weekend, both Chiefs wish all the residents and visitors a safe and enjoyable holiday weekend.
