What is the TPA and what is its stance on the Fourth of July celebration and the distribution of fireworks?

The Texas Pyrotechnic Association (TPA) represents firework manufacturers, distributors and approximately 5,000 retailers. Our commitment is to promote safety and education of fireworks.

Safety first. If Texans follow the directions printed on the label and adhere to the common sense safety guidelines distributed by Texas Pyrotechnic Association members, they're sure to have a safe and enjoyable Fourth of July.
