Important Safety Tips
- Grills—County law prohibits the use of charcoal or propane-fueled grills—or any other open-flame cooking or heating device—on any balcony or within 15 feet of multifamily buildings such as apartments. This restriction does not apply to townhouses or single family homes.
- Fireworks—The use of backyard fireworks without a permit is illegal; some ground-based and handheld sparklers are legal in Baltimore County. Read the laws regulating fireworks. Thousands of people are injured every year in fireworks-related incidents. Fire officials encourage you to enjoy fireworks safely by visiting a legal display.
