[IDHS] Purchase Fireworks From a Licensed Vendor
Start Date: 6/12/2014Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 6/12/2014
Entry Description
PURCHASE FIREWORKS FROM A LICENSED VENDOR

As Indiana rolls into the summer and fireworks seasons, it is important that Hoosiers purchase fireworks from reputable sources. The Indiana State Fire Marshal reminds Hoosiers to purchase fireworks only from licensed fireworks vendors.

Fireworks vendors of any kind must be licensed to sell fireworks in Indiana, and have a permit from the Indiana Department of Homeland Security’s Fire and Building Safety Division, which is overseen by the State Fire Marshal. Fireworks vendor permits must be displayed on the wall in the stores. If you don’t see one, ask an employee to see it. If the permit can’t be produced, call the State Fire Marshal at (317) 232-2222.

Consumers should also remember that only those at least 18 years of age or older can purchase fireworks. Without a special permit, it is only legal to buy 1.4G consumer fireworks. This includes bottle rockets and fire crackers, among others.
