...ty Fireworks Restrictions
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:
Dry washes and drainages
River and stream corridors
Hillsides, plateaus and mesa tops
Undeveloped open space or natural terrain
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:
No discharge of fireworks within the areas listed
No firecrackers, cherry bombs, roman candles, bottle rockets, single or reloadable mortars, or other Class "C" fireworks not State of Utah approved.
Recreational fires, unless the location is approved by the fire department (click here for recreational burning regulations)
Welding, cutting, or grinding within the areas listed, unless approved by the fire department.
No sky lanterns.
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.
Safety TipsThe 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.
Use only fireworks purchased in the State of Utah from licensed dealers or retailers. If you purchased the fireworks out of state, they may not be legal in this state. You will be cited if found to be in possession of illegal fireworks, and will be responsible to pay for damages and extinguishing costs as a result of any fires that you cause.
Use fireworks only with responsible adult supervision at all times.
Never allow young children to handle fireworks.
Light the fireworks in an open area and 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.
Handle used and "dud" fireworks with a shovel.
Soak fireworks thoroughly in a bucket of water, or douse them with a hose prior to disposal.
Keep clear while lighting fireworks, and do not lean over them at any time.
Do not relight “dud” fireworks.
Watch out for your pets and animals. It is preferable to keep them indoors and away from the displays.
Check for any restrictions that may apply to your area.
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, plea...
