SASKATOON – The Saskatoon Fire Department is reminding residents that low-hazard fireworks can only be detonated on private property between dusk and 11 p.m. on Labour Day.
Detonating fireworks outside of the specified timeframe or on public property is prohibited under city bylaws.
Shimmering displays, like the PotashCorp Fireworks Festival, often inspire people to buy their own fireworks, according to fire officials.
However, fire marshals are warning people of the danger if the proper precautions are not taken.
For information on firework permits, contact the acting fire marshal at 306-975-2520 or visit the city’s website.
