Should We Ban Fireworks?
A public issues forum discussion guide available for use by any community wanting to develop public policy about the use of fireworks inside a town.
As a community grows, the discharge of fireworks in town becomes a greater safety issue for
homeowners and children. At the same time, injuries from fireworks are on the decline and many homeowners consider fireworks a personal freedom they don’t want to give up.
This forum presents arguments both in favor and against fireworks. The objective of the forum is to deliberate both the pros and cons of fireworks, fireworks safety and current city law. The hope is that residents leave the meeting with a better understanding of current city rules, an opinion on how to address fireworks with public policy and a desire to let the city council know
how they feel.
