Fireworks Within The City of Charleston

June 29, 2020

The following is a message from the City of Charleston Police & Fire Departments regarding fireworks:

As the 4th of July holiday approaches, residents are reminded that in the City of Charleston (including all incorporated suburban neighborhoods, which does include Daniel Island) fireworks are prohibited per (Municipal Code 13-191) primarily for fire prevention and neighborhood serenity. There is no exemption for holidays such as the 4th of July or New Year’s eve. To those not participating, the sound of fireworks is very startling and disturbing, particularly at night, frightening young children, the elderly and pets. The sounds are often also confused with gunfire, which causes even more fear.

Lt. Matthew Wojslawowicz, Team 5 Commander for Daniel Island from the Charleston Police Department encourages everyone to celebrate the Fourth of July in a safe manner. “While fireworks are fun and an excellent way to honor our independence, the use of fireworks in the City of Charleston will not be tolerated due to the extreme safety issues associated with them when not done properly and by professionals. In addition, police will not tolerate those drinking and driving on the Fourth of July. If you choose to go out and celebrate, make sure that you have a safe way to get home to include a designated driver or the use of a ride-share program. Public safety is everyone’s responsibility!”

For all fireworks concerns or complaints, please call the police non-emergency dispatch number (843) 743-7200 to have the police respond to that particular area or address of concern. Police will respond to complaints for fireworks on Daniel Island and they will take appropriate action.
