Fireworks GraphicConsumer fireworks are readily available in Michigan and have become a popular way to celebrate holidays. However, the use of consumer fireworks comes with great responsibility that should be taken seriously. Ypsilanti Township has restricted the use of fireworks to the absolute minimum allowed by state law. Despite those restrictions, the Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office receives a high volume of fireworks complaints on a regular basis. Most violations are for setting them off on days not permitted or after midnight.

Residents are respectfully asked to follow all safety rules and legal requirements when igniting fireworks in neighborhoods. Please be respectful of others in your neighborhood who may be adversely affected by long periods of loud explosions from fireworks displays.

For Independence Day, fireworks are permitted beginning June 29th - July 4th between 11:00am - 11:45pm.

For Labor Day, fireworksare  permitted the Saturday & Sunday preceding Labor Day 11:00am - 11:45pm. Fireworks are NOT allowed on Labor Day (Monday).

Fireworks violations can be reported to the Washtenaw County Sheriff's Office by calling (734) 994 - 2911 for non-emergency police service.
