Just Because You Can Buy Fireworks, It Does Not Mean They Are Legal Without A Permit

 

Dispatchers in Kewaunee and Door counties are already receiving complaints of fireworks being shot off illegally. Kewaunee County Sheriff Matt Joski says just because you can buy them at roadside stands, it doesn’t mean you can ignite them without a permit.

Joski says randomly shooting fireworks can also cause problems for people nearby.

The fine for illegal use of fireworks can be as much as $200, and any remaining fireworks are likely to be confiscated.

Most fireworks are illegal in state parks and forests, and rangers will issue citations. That’s a reminder from the Department of Natural Resources. Sparklers and snakes are allowed, but rangers would rather not see them because they are fire hazards.
