Illegal sale of firecrackers is a punishable offence.

The Abu Dhabi Police have warned residents of the dangers posed by fireworks during Eid Al Adha celebrations, while urging parents to monitor their children to avoid accidents.

The police pointed out that fireworks not only pose a risk to children but also other people in the vicinity, causing them permanent or temporary injuries, as well as damage to property.

Abu Dhabi Police urged parents to cooperate and commit to instructions, report companies that sell materials that may harm the community, and monitor their children and prevent them from playing with fireworks.

Police have warned that illegal use or sale of any kind of firecrackers without being will be penalised.

According to the law, a person caught selling fireworks without a licence can be jailed for a period of not less than six months or fined Dh10,000.
