To possess or use restricted fireworks without a permit from the town chairperson or the local sheriff’s department is not permitted. These permits are only issued to groups or organizations and restrict fireworks use to a certain time and place. It is unlawful to sell restricted fireworks to someone who does not possess a valid permit. Restricted fireworks are defined as those that move, jump, explode or emit balls of fire and include bottle rockets, firecrackers, jumping jacks and roman candles. Restricted fireworks are much more likely to cause a forest fire or injury because of their erratic and unpredictable behavior.
