Fireworks in Sedgwick County

Click here to access the 2015 Fireworks Guide, including information about regulations on firework sales and discharges in Sedgwick County for the Independence Day holiday.

Concerns about non-emergency nuisances that do not pose a threat to life or property during the holiday can be directed to the the Emergency Communications non-emergency line, 316-290-1011; examples include complaints about parties, excess noise, fireworks, etc. The line will be staff during the following hours:

  • 6:30 p.m., July 3, to 3 a.m., July 4
  • 6:30 p.m., July 4, to 3 a.m., July 5

The non-emergency line was established to prevent an influx of nuisance calls that can block emergency calls from reaching a call taker; the non-emergency line is activated during times of historically high call volumes and as otherwise needed. If someone calls 911 with a non-emergency, he or she will be transferred to the non-emergency line.
