Ahead of Fourth of July weekend, the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) reminds the public that fireworks are prohibited on DNR-managed lands. These restricted areas include state parks, forests and state-owned public hunting and fishing areas, according to Wisconsin DNR. In Wisconsin, fireworks are also regulated and in order to legally use them, patrons must obtain a permit, depending on the type of firework that is being used. It is recommended to check with local officials before purchasing. Wisconsin DNR states that most wildfires caused by fireworks occur during the weeks leading up to and after the Fourth of July as well as during periods of extended drought. They caution citizens to be careful with fires and fireworks during this time and the entirety of the summer months, when drought conditions are most probable.
