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 in designated areas of the City.
No fireworks of any kind are to be used within 250 feet of the following areas:
Use of fireworks is completely prohibited in the development north of Snow Canyon Parkway on State Road 18, including The Ledges development.
Prohibited activities include:
Fireworks 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 have 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.
