*** BAN ON OPEN BURNING ***
Ban Does Not Include Consumer Grade Fireworks Used During Legally Permitted Time Periods and Days
Due to the extreme drought in the area, the Lansing Township Fire Department has issued a temporary ban on recreational burning for Lansing Township residents. The ban is effective immediately and will be in effect until significant rainfall is received. The public will be notified when the ban is lifted. At this time, the ban does not include consumer grade fireworks used during legally permitted time periods and days.
Cooking grills using charcoal or propane are still allowed but should never be left unattended.
Lansing Township residents are reminded that they are required to obtain a recreational burn permit prior to beginning any open burning.

FIREWORK SAFETY TIPS FROM THE U.S. FIRE ADMINISTRATION
- Never allow children to play with or ignite fireworks. Sparklers are considered by many the ideal "safe" firework for the young and burn at very low temperatures; however, they can easily ignite clothing.
- Read and follow all warnings and instructions.
- Be sure other people are out of range before lighting fireworks. Never shoot a firework at or near another person.
- Only light fireworks on a smooth, flat surface away from the house, dry leaves, and flammable materials.
- Never try to relight fireworks that have not fully functioned. Douse and soak them with water and throw them away.
- Keep a bucket of water handy in case of a malfunction or fire.
- Never ignite fireworks in a container, especially a glass or metal container.
- Keep unused fireworks away from firing areas.
- Store fireworks in a cool, dry place. Check instructions for special storage directions.
- When lighting, never have any portion of your body directly over a firework.
- Don't experiment with homemade fireworks.
