Fireworks Safety

  • Once you have a permit, store fireworks where they cannot be accessed by anyone under the age of 18 years. E.g. a locked garden shed.
  • Store in a cool, dry, well ventilated place away from sources of heat
  • Read all instructions on the fireworks before using them. Choose a wide, clear site away from buildings, roads, vehicles and obstacles.
  • Fireworks are not allowed in public areas such as parks, sidewalks, streets and school yards
  • Do not use fireworks in windy conditions
  • Never light fireworks or hold a lit firework in your hand
  • Bury fireworks that do not have a base, halfway in a heavy container of dirt or sand. Set them at a 10-degree angle, pointing away from people and obstacles.
  • Throw used fireworks into a pail of water and wait until the next day to dispose of them
  • Wait at least 30 minutes before approaching fireworks that did not go off.  Do not try to re-light ones that did not go off.
