County of BrantCounty of Brant reminds residents of Fireworks Bylaw

With the Victoria Day long weekend approaching, the County of Brant is reminding residents of the recent changes to the Fireworks Bylaw 19-23.

With these changes, Family Fireworks can now only be discharged on and three (3) days before and three (3) days after both the Victoria Day and Canada Day holidays. Outside of these days, an approved permit from the County of Brant Fire Chief is required.

“We know that many residents enjoy Family Fireworks over the Victoria Day and Canada Day holiday, and we want to encourage anyone doing so to please have safety at top of mind,” shared Fire Chief Darren Watson. “When using these fireworks, please read all of the instructions provided and remember that you must be 18 years or older to discharge Fireworks.”

Fireworks Safety Tips include:

  1. Choose a wide, clear site away from obstacles
  2. Check the weather – do not use fireworks if it’s windy
  3. Use a good base for your fireworks, such as a pail filled with dirt or sand
  4. Never light a firework in your hand
  5. Keep water nearby
  6. Store fireworks in a cool, dry place away from children

“We hope everyone has a fun and safe Victoria Day long weekend with family and friends,” said Chief Watson.
