Should we Ban Fireworks (Tri-fold Discussion Guide)

Written and sold by Greene County Extension  Contact seller


There are three major positions regarding the use of fireworks. Provide this guide to individual participants and have a civic community discussion.


This discussion guide and forum – entitled “Should We Ban Fireworks?” -- presents arguments
both in favor and against fireworks. The guide is to use three different perspective to organize a civic discussion of this topic.

One perspective is that if fireworks are unsafe 364 days a year how can they become safe on one particular day? Currently, seven states ban consumer fireworks. The fireworks banned in these states don’t become safer when used in other states. Many organizations — like the National Fire Protection Association and American Academy of Pediatrics — agree.

On the other hand, the American Pyrotechnics Association says consumer fireworks are strictly regulated and safe when used properly. Fireworks usage has increased four-fold since1976 but the injury rate has fallen by 86 percent
during that same period of time. The real culprit is illegal fireworks according to the APA.

It may be that cities need to do more to make citizens aware of the restrictions current city law
places on fireworks while also encouraging safe practices.

Or, there may be other and better solutions. It is up to you to decide.
