Wauconda Residents Take Steps to Prevent 4th of July Firework Fires?

7/1/2024 (Permalink)

A public fireworks display is reflected on the surface of a lake. We are leaders in fire damage restoration services in Lake County.

Our Mundelein and North Wauconda teams wish everyone in Lake County a Happy 4th of July. It's important to note that in Illinois, the use of fireworks is prohibited unless they are part of a public display authorized by local permits and under supervision. However, this regulation does not apply to certain items such as sparklers, smoke devices, snake and glow worm pellets, trick noisemakers, and most toy cap guns that utilize plastic or paper caps.

Here are some strategies for enjoying a fun and safe Independence Day in Wauconda:

Attend a public fireworks display

  • These events are managed by experts and are a safer alternative to a personal display.

Safety Tips for Home

  • If you do plan to use fireworks at home, choose a clear, open area away from buildings, trees, and flammable materials like dry grass or leaves.
  • Always keep a bucket of water or a working hose nearby for emergencies. After the fireworks have been used, douse them with plenty of water before disposing of them to prevent trash fires. Never relight a "dud" firework; soak it in water and throw it away.
  • Supervise any activity involving fireworks closely, especially if children are present.
