Fireworks stands are popping up and selling merchandise throughout the area, but buyers should be aware of the law when it comes to purchasing and more importantly setting off any type of fireworks in Wisconsin. Kewaunee County Sheriff Matt Joski says there is one important thing people should know.
Joski says that some rural townships issue fireworks permits but you have the right license to set off the fireworks. The majority of fireworks injuries happen when people attempt to re-light fireworks that initially does not ignite, according to Joski. He recommends that with any fireworks all children should have parental guidance and that water sources should be used to extinguish all used fireworks and of course be disposed of properly.
