Greenville Reminds Residents of Fireworks Regulations

As the world gears up to welcome the new year, the city of Greenville reminds residents of the city’s fireworks ordinance.

Greenville City Council enacted an ordinance in November 2019 prohibiting the use, discharge, shooting, or ignition of fireworks or similar explosives between the hours of 10 p.m. and 9 a.m.

The ordinance does, however, offer an exception that permits extra hours on New Year’s Eve and July 4th. As a result, after 12:30 a.m. on January 1, the discharge of fireworks in Greenville is prohibited.

The ordinance, on the other hand, does not restrict the use of sparklers or other pyrotechnic items. Sparklers, however, can be dangerous to children, according to the Greenville City Fire Department. Safer options, such as glow sticks, confetti poppers, or colorful streamers, are encouraged by the agency.

You may contact the police non-emergency hotline at 864-271-5333 to report someone violating the fireworks law.
