Here’s a look at the fireworks laws in your community.


Consumer fireworks, including sparklers, are illegal in Franklin. The sale of fireworks is also not permitted anywhere in the city. But because many vendors set up fireworks stands just outside the city limits, residents may not realize when they purchase fireworks in the county that they cannot be used in the city.

The city’s 1999 ordinance banning fireworks allows enforcement by the police, as well as the fire department. Violators may face fines, and may be held liable for damages.

Spring Hill

The City Ordinance regulating fireworks allows them to be discharged between noon and 11 p.m. July 4.

The Spring Hill Police Department will respond to fireworks complaints outside of this time period or if someone is using fireworks in an otherwise unlawful manner. Keep in mind that the Spring Hill Fire Department may impose a ban on fireworks if dry conditions are likely.

If you wish to report a firework complaint, please contact the non-emergency dispatch number at 931-486-2632, or 911 if it’s an emergency.


Personal firework displays are illegal inside the City of Brentwood without a permit – something that has been part of the municipal code for many years. The City asks that all residents be respectful of their neighbors and allow the only fireworks set off to be those in permitted displays. Concerns about violations can be reported to the Brentwood Police at the non-emergency line only, at 615-371-0160.


Fireworks can be discharged on July 3rd, 4th and 5th from noon until 11pm. Fireworks should not be discharged on public roadways, streets, sidewalks or any other public owned property, within 600 feet of a church, hospital, public school or park or within 200 feet of a gas station. Fairview’s fireworks ordinance also reminds residents not to throw fireworks from a motor vehicle, into a motor vehicle or at anyone.


There are no fireworks guidelines or ordinances; however, Nolensville does have a noise ordinance after 11pm.
