Make sure you are safe during your celebrations of Independence Day with a few reminders:
- Fireworks can be lit 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. July 3 through July 6. For New Year’s Eve, fireworks may be discharged 11 p.m. Dec. 31 through 12:30 a.m. Jan. 1.
- To light fireworks, you must be at least 18 years of age or be under adult supervision.
- Fireworks should not be lit in any gathering of people; in public parks, including golf courses, and public parking lots of the city; within any building; or in, under, or from a car or vehicle whether moving or standing still.
- The use of fireworks is prohibited in the event of a burn ban or declaration of an emergency; however, the sale of fireworks is still allowed.
For safety purposes — and to keep our community looking tidy — all unfired fireworks and debris should be immediately cleaned up, removed from any adjacent right-of-way, and disposed of in a nonflammable container.
