With Greeley’s adoption of the 2009 International Fire Code that went into effect January 1, 2010, Greeley residents are allowed to purchase and use consumer fireworks within the City of Greeley. Consumer fireworks are those that can be legally purchased within the State of Colorado per State statute and include: cylindrical and cone fountains, ground spinners, dipped sticks and sparklers, snakes and glow worms, trick noisemakers and certain other novelties. Fireworks that leave the ground or explode such as bottle rockets and firecrackers remain prohibited and users are subject to penalties.
Union Colony Fire Rescue asks that consumer fireworks users follow these safety tips:
And remember, as an operator of consumer fireworks you are 100% liable for your safety and the safety of others. Any harm to yourself, others or property that may result from your storage, use, or handling of consumer fireworks is your responsibility.
