Lacombe County reminds residents of Fireworks Permit requirements

Fireworks permit is required if you wish to sell, purchase or set off fireworks

With Canada Day celebrations approaching, Lacombe County reminds all residents that a fireworks permit is required if you wish to sell, purchase or set off fireworks within Lacombe County.

“Canada Day is a popular occasion to set off fireworks, but regardless of the time of the year, a permit is required within Lacombe County if you plan on shooting off fireworks,” says Drayton Bussiere Lacombe County Fire Chief. “Lacombe County regulates the use of fireworks through a permitting system. All you have to do is fill out and submit a Fireworks Permit form.”

Bussiere notes that conditions of having a fireworks permit include permission from adjacent landowners so it is important to discuss fireworks plans with your neighbours in advance. Fireworks can also not be set off from public lands or roadways, if there is a fire ban, or if wind exceeds 20 km/h.

Although the use of fireworks can be a safe practice, if all precautions are adhered to, people are reminded that they are responsible for any fireworks they have in their possession. Fireworks permits are free of charge and an application is available on the Lacombe County website www.lacombecounty.com or by stopping in at the front desk of the County administration office.
