With July 4th quickly approaching, the East Grand Rapids Department of Public Safety would like to remind all residents to adhere to the following safety tips concerning fireworks:
Please note per Michigan law, fireworks will be permitted in EGR between June 29 and July 4, 2021 until 11:45 p.m. They are prohibited on public, church, school or private property without express permission from the property owner or a permit from the City.
If you choose to celebrate the 4th of July by setting off fireworks, please be courteous of your neighbors. The loud noises and flashing lights are a PTSD trigger for many veterans and also frighten many animals.
We hope residents and visitors alike have a safe holiday!
