While the upcoming Canada Day fireworks display is a crowd-pleaser, setting off your own is a big no-no.
According to Paul Prevost, deputy fire chief in Fort Saskatchewan, consumer fireworks are not permitted in the city.
"Except for a professional display," said Prevost. "Consumer fireworks can be very dangerous. We do not permit them to buy them, sell them or use them."
The use of fireworks is a violation of the Alberta Fire Code.
As per usual, the Fort Saskatchewan Fire Department will be close to the firework action on Canada Day.
"Because of the values in the area. Just to protect the Fort and historic site just in case anything were to get out of hand."
Prevost said the people setting off the fireworks are trained professionals and there is little risk.
Neighbouring Sturgeon County and Strathcona County allow fireworks in certain areas with a permit. There are specifications that must be met to purchase fireworks, including being over 18.
