Local Fireworks Ordinances and Laws:

Volusia County:

As of June 2020, a new Florida law states that fireworks can be used on Independence Day, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day without violating section 791.07 of the Florida Statutes, unless a local government has enacted stricter regulation.

In other words, the new state law allows fireworks on July 4, but it does not supersede a local government ordinance prohibiting fireworks.

Consumer-grade fireworks are banned on Volusia County’s beaches, where they not only leave a mess, they can frighten nesting sea turtles and cause birds to abandon their nests. 

Ponce Inlet:

The Town of Ponce Inlet wants residents and visitors to have a safe July 4th Holiday. Ponce Inlet Town Ordinance 2004-05 prohibits the use of fireworks anywhere within the Town limits. This ordinance is not superseded by state statute and it will be enforced in Ponce Inlet.

Please respect your neighbors, the natural environment in which you live, and the abundance of wildlife in our community that are negatively and sometimes fatally affected by loud fireworks.

If you see violations, please contact the Ponce Inlet Police Department by calling 386-236-2160

Deltona:

Deltona Ordinance Sec. 42-215. – Discharge of fireworks or sparklers restricted.
(a) It shall be unlawful to discharge any fireworks or sparklers within 100 feet of a temporary stand, LPG, flammable liquid or gas, storage or dispensing units.
(b) It shall be unlawful to discharge any fireworks or sparklers within 20 feet of any residence, dwelling, or other structure.
(c) It shall be unlawful to discharge any fireworks or sparklers in public rights-of-way, parks, or other public properties.
(Ord. No. 17-2004, § 1, 6-7-2004)

In short, by definition any type of firework that propels itself through the air or otherwise leaves the ground and/or explodes or makes noise in any way is not permitted for personal use within the city.

“Sparklers” that only emit a shower of sparks upon burning are permitted. For additional information on Fireworks please see Florida Statutes – Chapter 791 “Sale of Fireworks”

Fireworks and Pets:

State law allows for Fireworks on the 4th of July. BUT not everyone likes fireworks. Remember our pets are more sensitive to loud noises, flashing lights and strong smells. It is best to leave your pets safely indoors, preferably with a radio or TV turned on to soften jarring noises. Below are more tips to help keep your pets safe.
