Summer 2023 Fireworks Information

Pennington County, S.D. – Every year law enforcement and public safety agencies are flooded with questions about fireworks.

To accommodate the interest and answer questions efficiently, the Emergency Services Communication Center will again host a special line dedicated to information related to fireworks: what is legal, where, and public displays.

The public may call (605) 394-2151, option 9, for answers to fireworks related questions. You may also call 211 directly.

The best and safest way to enjoy fireworks is to attend a public firework display and leave the lighting to the professionals. The following are available in the Black Hills region (subject to cancellation/change due to conditions):
