A reminder for Oahu residents, Friday is the deadline to purchase a firecracker permit.

They cost $25 and can be bought at all Satellite City Halls. Most of those locations close at 4 p.m.

Only firecrackers bought with a permit from a licensed retailer are legal.

As of Wednesday, Honolulu fire officials say more than 6,000 permits have been sold.

Meanwhile, firecracker permits for Big Island residents go on sale next Thursday, the day after Christmas.

On Kauai, the last day to obtain a permit is New Year's Eve, Tuesday Dec. 31.

Permits for the Garden Isle are available at the Kauai Fire Dept. headquarters in the Lihue Civic Center on Rice Street.

On Maui permits are available at the Maui Fire Prevention Bureau and Parks and Recreations offices.

Most permits limit the number of firecracker purchases to 5,000 per permit.
