[Reporter Wang Jinyi/Hualien Report] Many people will set off firecrackers and fireworks during the Lunar New Year. Many business operators see the business opportunity to purchase large quantities of firecrackers and fireworks. The Hualien County Fire Department pointed out that fireworks and firecrackers are controlled products. If the sales or storage exceeds the controlled quantity , the maximum fine is 1.5 million yuan, and the fire department reminds the industry not to set up stalls to sell firecrackers and fireworks at will, and continue to publicize to avoid breaking the law.
The Fire Department of Hualien County Government pointed out that a large number of fireworks were recently found to be transported to Hualien County, and reminded the villagers that in accordance with the regulations on the management of firecrackers and fireworks, in addition to the sale of fireworks, an approval mark must be attached, and more importantly, if the quantity sold on the spot exceeds the control limit, It must comply with the relevant regulations on location, structure, and equipment, and take out public accident liability insurance. Otherwise, you may be fined up to NT$1.5 million. Do not set up stalls to sell firecrackers and fireworks at will, so as not to break the law.

The Fire Department pointed out that pyrotechnics are controlled products, and the amount of control varies. For example, the amount of gunpowder for falling guns can reach 0.3 kg, the amount of gunpowder for general firecrackers can reach 5 kg, or the amount of gunpowder for firecrackers, continual guns, and confetti-free guns can reach 10 kg. Controlled quantity, whether it is sold or stored, its location, structure, equipment and safety management must comply with the Firecrackers and Pyrotechnics Management Regulations, otherwise, depending on the severity of the case, a fine of up to NT$1.5 million can be imposed.
The Fire Department emphasized that under normal circumstances, sales venues will only sell a small amount of goods in batches, and if the control volume is not reached, it is in compliance with the regulations.
However, due to the surge in demand during the Chinese New Year, there are often business operators who see business opportunities and purchase a large amount of goods. It is easy to exceed the control amount and break the law without knowing it.
I appeal to the public not to sell or store fireworks at will, so as to avoid huge fines and reprieve for violating regulations. I also take the opportunity to publicize to the folks that when setting off fireworks, you must pay attention to the time of release. Except for special festivals where there are no special restrictions due to customs and customs, after 10 o'clock every night Fireworks cannot be set off until 7 o'clock the next day, otherwise a maximum fine of NT$150,000 will be imposed.
