FDL Fire & Rescue Stressing Danger of Illegal Fireworks after Recent Injury


Even though the Fourth of July has passed, recent cases of people being injured because of fireworks have Fond du Lac Fire and Rescue again reminding people that it is illegal to have fireworks that explode or leave the ground in the city. On Monday night this week a man was injured near Lakeside Park when reports say he lit an illegal firework which was supposed to shoot off into the sky, but exploded on the ground. The man received burns and cuts to several areas of his body, including his neck, face and hands. Division Chief Troy Haase says once again, the rules are simple. “If you’re purchasing fireworks that leave the ground or explode, for one – you’re breaking the law,” Haase said. “Two, you’re putting yourself in jeopardy – and you’re facing a fine if you get caught.”

Haase says some places might give you a permit to have the fireworks, but in the City of Fond du Lac itself that permit is not valid. He says any permits issued by a place outside of the city usually give specific rules about where you can use the fireworks. “On that permit, it tells you where you have to shoot them off,” Haase said. “They have some pre-arranged place in the county where you can shoot them off. You cannot bring those fireworks and go shoot them off at your house, it’s against the law.” Overall, Haase says the big fireworks should be left to the professionals for everyone’s safety.
