Riverview By-Law R700-05-1 (Health, Safety and Welfare) prohibits the discharge of fireworks within the Town limits without written permission from the Chief of Riverview Fire & Rescue.

Fireworks are often used to mark special events and holidays. However, they are not safe in the hands of consumers. Fireworks cause thousands of burns and eye injuries each year. People can enjoy fireworks safely if they follow a few simple safety tips:

· Be safe. If you want to see fireworks, go to a public show put on by experts.

· Do not use consumer fireworks.

· Keep a close eye on children at events where fireworks are used.
