2021 Fireworks hours

If you have a noise complaint about fireworks, use the county’s non-emergency number: 402-593-4111.

Calling 911 for non-emergency reasons could delay an emergency call from getting through, so please know which number to use.

Officers will respond to noise complaints only after all emergency calls have been resolved.

Fireworks safety tips from the National Safety Council:

  • Never allow young children to handle fireworks
  • Older children should use them only under close adult supervision

  • Never hold lighted fireworks in your hands
  • Never light them indoors
  • Only use them away from people, houses and flammable material
  • Never point or throw fireworks at another person
  • Only light one device at a time and maintain a safe distance after lighting
  • Never ignite devices in a container
