Fireworks are illegal in the Billings city limits. You are encouraged to enjoy the local public fireworks displays during Independence Day. For those people who choose to use fireworks, be sure to follow these important safety tips:
Keep a bucket of water handy in case of a malfunction or fire.
Read and follow all warnings and instructions.
Never allow children to play with or ignite fireworks.
Be sure other people are out of range before lighting fireworks. Never shoot a firework at or near another person.
Only light fireworks on a smooth, flat surface away from the house, dry leaves, and flammable materials. • Never try to relight fireworks that have not fully functioned. Douse and soak them with water and throw them away.
Never ignite fireworks in a container, especially a glass or metal container.
Keep unused fireworks away from firing areas.
Store fireworks in a dry, cool place. Check instructions for special storage directions.
