Firework Safety Tips

Firework Safety Reminders for Residents

The Palatine Fire Prevention Division reminds residents that all fireworks, including the so-called 'safe' variety, are illegal in the Village of Palatine. Illegal fireworks classified as 'Approved Consumer Fireworks' include sparklers, cones including showers of sparks, fountains, repeaters/cakes, mines, comets, tubes, shells, fancy florals and parachutes.

'Prohibited Consumer Fireworks' are those that are illegal to use and possess in Illinois, but are legal in some neighboring states. These include sky lanterns, all hand-held fireworks, bottle rockets, firecrackers of any size or type, sky rockets, roman candles, chasers, buzz bombs, helicopters, missiles, pinwheels, and planes.

Tips for enjoying firework displays:
  • Resist temptation to get close to the actual firing site. The best viewing is from a quarter mile away.
  • Pets have sensitive ears, and the noise associated with firework displays can be uncomfortable for dogs, especially. The best choice is to leave dogs at home.
  • Although it rarely happens, it is possible firework components might fall to the ground without exploding. The public should take caution and not touch these fireworks and call 9-1-1 immediately.
Have a safe and enjoyable 4th of July by participating only in public firework displays that are conducted by trained professionals.
