DETROIT, June 28, 2022 ~ The 4th of July holiday is here, and with a weekend sure to be filled with gatherings, barbecues, and celebrations, many Michiganders are asking the question “When can I set off fireworks?”

According to state law, local municipalities can set ordinances, however, if none are placed, fireworks are legal to be used in Michigan year round. Additionally, no restrictions can be placed on firework usage from June 29 – July 4 from 11 a.m. to 11:45 p.m., as well as certain dates surrounding other holidays, such as Memorial Day and New Year’s Day, to name a few.

Listen below as State Fire Marshal Kevin Sehlmeyer joins “The Paul W. Smith Show” to speak on the full scope of public firework ordinances in Michigan.
