The Oregon State Fire Marshal’s Office has developed four fireworks toolkits to assist local fire and police departments during the upcoming fireworks season. These resources should prove helpful with fireworks education and enforcement. 
The four toolkits contain information about public education, illegal fireworks, retail sales of fireworks, and displays of fireworks. Just click on the title of the document you want to access. Please feel free to download, print, copy, and distribute any of the materials contained in these kits.
Also included in the illegal fireworks toolkit is information about M-80 type devices and other explosive devices resembling firecrackers. These devices are sometimes mistakenly called fireworks. If you encounter any of these types of devices, or other devices containing silver powder (flash powder), please do not handle them. Contact your local bomb squad or the Oregon State Police (OSP) Bomb Squad for assistance. OSP dispatch numbers are located in "A Pocket Guide to Fireworks Enforcement" found in the Retail Sales and Illegal Fireworks toolkits.
We hope this information is useful to you, the first responder, in your encounters with fireworks this year.
