Fireworks Season

Generally speaking, the State Fire Marshal enforces laws governing the use, possession, shipment and sale of fireworks in Indiana. These laws make requirements of manufacturers, retailers and users of fireworks, and the IDHS Code Enforcement Section handles permits for fireworks wholesale and retail operations, as well as for public displays of fireworks. Access fireworks permitting and safety information below.
