Fireworks Safety reminders for those celebrating at home!

In Las Vegas we live under the constant threat of drought and with no measurable rainfall since February this year this holiday weekend requires a higher level of vigilance and responsibility when it comes to fireworks. Only Fireworks labeled Safe-n- Sane are permitted for use in Clark County from June 28th-July 4th.  “Safe-N-Sane fireworks are those that have been tested and approved by valley fire departments for use during this one week of the year. At all other times of the year, Safe-N-Sane fireworks are illegal as well as any other type of firework that flies through the air, explodes or rotates on the ground.  Download the full pdf detailing all the guidelines.

  • Fireworks should be used on a flat, firm surface such as the ground or a driveway. Fireworks are illegal on the street and sidewalk.
  • Stay away from bushes, grass and trees, or anything else that might catch fire. Stay away from vehicles.
  • Have a bucket of water and/or garden hose available for use in case of fire.
  • There should be a responsible adult present when fireworks are being used.
  • After the firework has been used, it should be picked up with a shovel, dropped into a bucket of water and left to soak for several hours before being discarded in the trash.
  • “Duds” or fireworks that did not go off after being lit should be picked up with a shovel and dropped into a bucket of water. You should not try to relight it.
  • If a fire does start because of fireworks, don’t panic. Use the garden hose or bucket of water to put the fire out or prevent it from getting larger. Call 9-1-1 for emergency assistance.
  • Fireworks should never be used in a building.
  • Any type of firework, including Safe-N-Sane fireworks, is illegal at midnight on July 5.
  • Fireworks are illegal at all times on streets, city property, school district property and in any park.
  • Fireworks are not permitted on federal property, which includes all parks and recreational areas such as Lake Mead, Mount Charleston, Spring Mountains and Red Rock. There is an extreme danger of fire in the parklands and people caught using fireworks can face an extremely stiff penalty.

Special Thanks to the City of Las Vegas for the list.
