PLEASE NOTE: Public fireworks displays are allowed when put on by pyrotechnic professionals and "sponsored by public authorities, fair associations, amusement parks, park boards or civic organizations if a permit for such display is issued by the city."
Per Wis. Stats. § 167.10, the following items do not require a permit: "sparklers not exceeding 36" in length, stationary cones and fountains, toy snakes, smoke bombs, caps, noisemakers, confetti poppers with less than 1/4 grain of explosive mixture, and novelty devices that spin or move on the ground."
Each July Fourth, thousands of people, most often children and teens, are injured while using consumer fireworks. Despite the dangers of fireworks, few people understand the associated risks - devastating burns, other injuries, fires, and even death. The Alliance to Stop Consumer Fireworks is a group of health and safety organizations, coordinated by NFPA, that urges the public to avoid the use of consumer fireworks and instead, to enjoy displays of fireworks conducted by trained professionals.
