As Independence Day celebrations draw near, the Indiana State Fire Marshal is reminding Hoosiers about the safe and legal ways to buy and store fireworks. Fireworks should only be purchased from a vendor with a valid Indiana fireworks sales permit. Fireworks vendors must have a permit from the Indiana Department of Homeland Security’s (IDHS) Fire and Building Safety Division, which is overseen by the State Fire Marshal. If a sales permit is not on display, it is okay to ask employees to see it before purchasing any kind of fireworks. If a fireworks retailer is not displaying, and is unable to provide a copy of its permit, citizens can call the IDHS Division of Fire and Building Safety at 317-232-2222.
