~ Info. to Know about Fireworks ~

Many residents may not know that fireworks are illegal inside Collinsville City limits; however, “consumer fireworks” such as sparklers and fountains are allowed.  Please exercise extreme caution when using the consumer fireworks - they can cause severe burns and other bodily injuries. The consumer types of fireworks are generally weaker in explosive power compared to professional displays and include snake or glow worm pellets, smoke devices, party poppers, snappers, trick matches, etc.

Several well-known types of fireworks such as firecrackers, bottle rockets, and Roman candles are wholeheartedly illegal not just in Collinsville, but also in the State of Illinois.  Any other type of firework and / or pyrotechnic display are also strictly prohibitedOur City is firm in what we do not allow during July 4th celebrations; anyone caught violating City code will be subject to a fine and confiscation of all illegal fireworks.

Each July 4th the Collinsville Police Department works hard to patrol our community.  They want to ensure that our residents are celebrating safely and obeying the law.  They are always ready to respond to reports of illegal firework activity and / or other complaints.  Our Fire Department is also on-call and prepped to respond to calls as well.
