Sioux Falls Fireworks Rules

Ben Davis

If you are planning on celebrating our country’s independence here are some rules and laws that should help you have a happy and safe 4th of July in Sioux Falls.

“The City of Sioux Falls prohibits the use of fireworks within the city limits with the exception of sparklers, snakes and other fireworks that do not have an audible report, projectile or launching component. If a police officer observes fireworks being discharged, he or she can issue an immediate citation, which is a $95 fine.”

Here are some other safety tips from

-Never allow children to play with or ignite fireworks.

-Use only fireworks purchased from a licensed retailer; homemade or altered manufactured fireworks are not only dangerous but also illegal.

-Read and follow all warnings and instructions.

-Be sure other people are out of range before lighting fireworks.

-Light fireworks only on a smooth, flat surface away from the house, dry leaves, and flammable materials.

-Never try to relight fireworks that have not fully functioned (“duds”).

-Have an extinguishing means (garden hose, water buckets, sand, or fire extinguisher) readily available for use should a fire occur.

-If a burn to the skin does occur, cool the burn with lots of cool water and seek medical attention.
