As we head into the Independence Day and Pioneer Day holidays, many people are planning to include fireworks as a part of their celebration. While some types of fireworks are legal and available for consumer use in Utah, Brigham Young University prohibits by policy the possession or use of any consumer fireworks on the BYU campus:
“The possession or use of fireworks, sky lanterns, pyrotechnic special effects, or blank shots is strictly prohibited on university property except as authorized by the university Fire Marshal.”
Brigham Young University, Risk Management and Safety Policy, at 3-4 (updated June 17, 2013).
Theatrical pyrotechnics, professional fireworks shows (such as Stadium of Fire), and other special effects will continue to be allowed with an approved permit from the campus Fire Marshal and Provo Fire Department.
