If you've been hearing loud, explosive noises throughout Edmonton this month, you're not alone. 

According to CTV News, local Police and Fire Rescue Services have fielded a number of calls about gunshots in Edmonton since July 1. But they turned out to be fireworks instead. 

51

Gunshot calls in just 10 days 

Officials are fed up as these sorts of calls block the work of dispatch services and eat up city resources. 

Fireworks can be set off on private property, as long as the owners can secure themselves a permit. 

Therefore, city officials are urging Edmontonians to obtain those permits and let them know when they're going to be lighting up the fireworks.
