State safety officials are reminding people that fireworks can be dangerous.

On Thursday, there was a live demonstration in Loudon at a sand pit. Department of Safety Commissioner Robert Quinn said they understand people want to celebrate, but they want everyone to be safe.

Quinn said people need to use permissible fireworks safely.
