The Town of Bennett wants everyone to stay safe this 4th of July holiday. Here are the regulations for Bennett Residents.
Bennett Fire wants to remind everyone about the importance of safety with fireworks. Sparklers, wheels, ground spinners, and cone fountains are legal to use but fireworks that explode or leave the ground like pop bottle rockets, roman candles, and firecrackers are illegal, and should only be performed by experts at a public show. If you are using fireworks be sure to have a bucket of water or a hose available to stay as safe as possible!
