With no public fireworks displays this Canada Day, backyard fireworks might be popular.

But not so fast, Iroquois Falls.  Fire prevention officer Tyler Mongeon says there is a strict bylaw regulating home fireworks.

“Anybody who desires to set off fireworks must first get a permit from the town,” he recites from that bylaw.

In order to get that permit, you have to have taken a certification course from Natural Resources Canada Explosive Regulatory Division.

“Fireworks have to be discharged between dusk and 11:00pm,” Mongeon adds.  “Fireworks can never be left unextinguished.  They always have to extinguished, never left unattended.”

The limits on crowd sizes have ruled out public fireworks this July 1st.
