In December 2011, Governor Rick Snyder signed P.A. 256 of 2011, Michigan Fireworks Safety Act, which allows the sale and use of consumer-grade fireworks in Michigan. LARA/Bureau of Fire Services have been given the responsibility of administering and enforcing the Fireworks Safety Act and the promulgated Fireworks General Safety rules to ensure retail locations throughout the State of Michigan comply with nationally accepted standards for the retail sale of consumer and low-impact fireworks, specifically the National Fire Protection Association Standards 101 and 1124.
All fees generated as part of the program are allocated to support the operation of the program and the training of the State's approximately 34,500 Fire Fighters.
Low Impact registrations are available all year, but expire in the same year applied on December 31. Consumer Fireworks applications are open on January 1st until April 1st , yearly. Expiration of consumer fireworks is not until the following year, on April 30th.
Note: Fire Safety Fees are due no later than 20 days after the end of each preceding month. If you have zero sales at a location, filing a zero sales report is required. Cancellation requests can be filed to end your reporting requirement, but all fire safety fees have to be filed through the date of the cancellation request.
