As you are aware, the State of Utah, Bureau of Land Management, National Forest Service, and many other state and federal agencies have restricted the use of fireworks in all unincorporated areas of the state. Due to the extreme fire danger that exists in the southwestern region of Utah, the St. George Fire Chief signed an order prohibiting fireworks or other ignition sources in designated areas of the City.
No fireworks or other ignition sources of any kind are to be used within 200 feet of the following areas:
The use of fireworks or other ignition sources is completely prohibited in the development north of Snow Canyon Parkway on State Road 18, including The Ledges' development.
Prohibited activities include:
Fireworks or other ignition sources restrictions are in effect, and it is important that you understand which locations throughout the city are restricted and considered dangerous for personal fireworks use. We hope that you find this webpage useful in identifying these areas. Local fireworks retailers will also have maps available for you to view. Your help in keeping our community safe this holiday season is very much appreciated.
The lighting of fireworks on holidays has become a tradition with many families. If families act responsibly with legal fireworks activities, they should have an enjoyable holiday. The vast majority of legal displays occur without incident. The majority of fire incidents that occur are a result of illegal or improper fireworks discharges. Be smart, safe, and responsible.
Fireworks are an American tradition. Safety and common sense are important as we celebrate the holidays with fireworks. Fireworks can provide hours of wholesome family entertainment but must be used carefully and safely.
If you have additional questions about fireworks use or would like information on obtaining a pyrotechnics display permit, please contact the St. George Fire Department at 435-627-4150.
To report the discharge of fireworks in restricted areas please call the non-emergency dispatch number at 435-627-4300. For emergencies, call 911.
