Fireworks can be a fun and exciting addition to any social event. However, please keep in mind that fireworks can also be a form of distress to some children, adults and pets.

A permit is required to discharge fireworks within the Town of Conception Bay South. The free permit is available at Station 1 in Kelligrews from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Permits are not required for fireworks displays on Canada Day and New Year’s Eve.

Fireworks cannot be discharged within 30 metres of a dwelling, structure, wood, brush or other flammable material. Residents are encouraged to strictly follow the manufacturer’s guidelines and are asked to review the Noise and Nuisance Regulations prior to discharging any fireworks. Copies of this regulation will be provided with all issued permits. For additional inquiries, please contact the Conception Bay South Fire Department at 834-6540.
