Local Officials Advise Against Amateur Fireworks Displays


If you’re planning a big home fireworks display this week, Sangamon County officials have one word of advice… don’t. 

 

Undersheriff Jack Campbell notes that virtually all forms of what he calls “classic fireworks,” from firecrackers to bottle rockets to Roman candles, are all prohibited in the state.  The only exception is to obtain a local permit… and the deadline for that has passed. 

 

Campbell says his deputies will be checking local stands to make sure they are not selling illegally, and will check out reports of illegal amateur displays as time and manpower permits.
