CRD passes resolution to restrict fireworks, use and sales in rural areas

Exceptions can be made for public display with written permission

The Cariboo Regional District (CRD) is asking the provincial government to apply an act which prohibits setting off, selling or giving fireworks outside of the period stretching from Oct. 24 to Nov. 1 in the rural areas of the CRD.

The act includes cannon crackers, fireballs, firecrackers, mines, Roman candles, skyrockets, squibs, torpedoes and any other explosive designated as a firework by regulation.

Furthermore, it allows the fire commissioner to designate fireworks that may not be sold to a minor without the written permission of a parent or guardian.

However, exceptions can be made for public display with the written permission of the fire commissioner or a local assistant of the fire commissioner who has jurisdiction in the fire district where the public display is held.
