Fireworks can bring special meaning to the Fourth of July. The National Fire Protection Association reports, however, that more fires are reported in the US on that day than any other and fireworks account for two out of five of those fires reported, more than any other cause of fires.

Within the city of Winfield any manufacture, assembly, possession, storage, sale  or discharge of fireworks is illegal. For the benefit and safety of our citizens City Ordinance does, however, allow the Fire Chief to grant a Fireworks Display Permit for supervised public displays, such as the majestic fireworks display conducted each Fourth of July by the Winfield Rotary Club.

The Permit requires 
a Kansas Fire Marshal's Public Display Operators License, commercial general liability insurance, a list of the Operators helpers, a site map, communication source with Winfield Fire/EMS, and other on-site detail.
