With Canada Day traditional fireworks displays being cancelled, municipalities and fire departments across the region are reminding people to celebrate responsibly when it comes to at-home fireworks.

For residents of Grimsby, fire prevention officer Scott Campbell says while the fire department does not endorse the use of consumer fireworks, the town does have several rules regarding their use.

“To minimize the risk of fire and burn injury, the Grimsby Fire Service does not recommend family (consumer) fireworks or informal neighbourhood displays. However, if you still choose to have a family fireworks display here are some important bylaws and safety tips you should follow.”

The first rule is in regards to timing. Campbell says consumer fireworks can only be set off in Grimsby between dusk and midnight for the two days before, and seven days after, Canada Day.

Campbell also says that no fireworks should be set off onto any highway, street, lane, square, public park, or other public place.

In the town of Lincoln, the use of consumer fireworks is also permitted around the holidays, with many of the same rules from Grimsby applying. For example, fireworks can be set off two days before and seven days after Canada Day, and fireworks can only be set off by adults 18 years or older.

Lincoln fire Chief Greg Hudson says that while fireworks are permitted for Canada Day and Victoria Day celebrations at home, the use of firecrackers is not.

Hudson also wants to remind people that any fireworks display should only be held on private property, while use on any public land is prohibited.

According to West Lincoln fire chief Dennis Fisher, no fireworks display is permitted, and the sale of commercial fireworks is also prohibited.

Family fireworks, however, are permitted for private use for two days before and two days after Canada Day.

For a full list of rules and regulations regarding firework use during Canada Day, consult your local fireworks bylaw.
