Fireworks in Valley Township

The Michigan Fireworks Safety Act allows the purchase, possession and use of consumer fireworks. However, use is limited to the day before, day of, or day after a national holiday.

If you plan on celebrating with fireworks, keep this in mind:

You will be held 100% responsible in the event of a fire. Depending on the fire department responding, the minimum charge by the fire department ranges between $800-$1000 and then hourly after that. Be sure you have water handy to extinguish any embers or in case a fire breaks out.
The Township Noise Ordinance which includes Public Nuisance will be enforced between the hours of 11:00pm and 6:00am

Please respect your neighbors.
