City of Leduc shares key information about fireworks
As Canada Day draws near, the City of Leduc believes it’s important for all citizens to know the facts on fireworks.
Fireworks are not permitted within the city’s boundaries, which is outlined in a number of municipal bylaws:
- Community Standards Consolidated Bylaw, section 6 ‘Dangerous Actions’
- Parkland Bylaw 689-2007, section 9 ‘Dangerous Actions While on Parkland’
If anyone wishes to use fireworks outside of the city limits, they are required to contact the local municipality for their fireworks regulations as each municipality may vary.
Natural Resources Canada has a ‘Display Fireworks Manual 2010’ posted online as a resource and Leduc Fire Services suggestions residents to reference Appendix 5 for more information.
As Alberta is currenting in Stage 2 of its relaunch strategy, it’s important to continue to follow the health and safety protocols put in place by the chief medical officer for Alberta. This includes regulations for gatherings to help prevent the spread of COVID-19: 50 people maximum for indoor social gathers and the maximum of 100 people for outdoor events and indoor seated/audience events.
For more information, contact Leduc Fire Services by calling 780-980-8475.
