For many in Utah, the use of fireworks is a tradition. Al-though fireworks are beautiful, fun and exciting to set off, people are handling explosive materials, dangerous chemicals and combustibles that can start fires, harm or cause death to unsuspecting victims. These deceptively simple objects explode, throwing 1,200 degrees Fahrenheit sparks through the air.
Utah changed its firework laws (HB38) in 2018. Under the new law, fireworks are only allowed to be set off from July 2-5 and from July 22-25. Fireworks may be discharged be-tween the hours of 11am—11pm on the days leading up to and following the holidays and till midnight on July 4 and 24. Cities and land managing agencies can also restrict areas where fireworks can be set off and restrict their use. Please watch for and abide by any special fireworks restrictions that may be put in place due to dry, dangerous conditions. Fire-works are prohibited within 250 feet of the following areas:
dry washes & drainage’s, river & stream corridors, hillsides, plateaus, & mesa tops, undeveloped open space or natural terrain. Check for a Fireworks Restriction Zone Map on the city website: www.sccity.org under Public Safety tab.
Fireworks Safety Tips:
-Use only fireworks purchased in the State of Utah from licensed dealers or retailers.
-Use fireworks only with responsible adult supervision at all times.
-Never allow young children to handle fireworks
-Light the fireworks in an open area & on a non-combustible surface, such as a driveway or paved area.
-If windy conditions exist, do not light fireworks.
-Keep a bucket of water available.
-Soak fireworks thoroughly in a bucket of water, or douse them with a hose prior to disposal
-Handle used & “dud” fireworks with a shovel. Do not try to relight.
-Keep clear while lighting fireworks, do not lean over them at any time.
-Keep pets indoors while setting off fireworks
Keep your Independence Day & Pioneer Day holidays fun and safe this summer!
