Firework are Not Toys! Your Insurance May Not Cover You.

What you need to know about fireworks.

Fireworks are a big part of many holiday celebrations, but they also can be dangerous. Here are five things to know to have fun with fireworks and stay safe.

Follow local rules

Some areas allow only certain types of fireworks, and most areas don’t allow fireworks within city limits or during burn bans. Follow the local law and contact your local fire officials if you have questions.

When are fireworks legal?

Fireworks can be sold only certain times of the year, typically during a week or so leading up to a major holiday. Besides Fourth of July, the 24th of July and New Year’s, Utah bans the use of fireworks.

You can use fireworks around the Fourth of July, 24th of July, and New Years  as long as they are not banned in the area you live.

Be safe!

  • Children should not use fireworks. Make sure an adult is always watching.
  • Remember: Alcohol and fireworks are a bad mix.
  • Follow the instructions on the firework.
  • Avoid shooting fireworks near dry grass, brush, or other materials that can easily catch on fire.
  • Never aim fireworks where they could land on a house or hit a person.
  • Have a bucket of water, garden hose, or other water source ready for emergencies.

Don't travel out of state to purchase illegal fireworks. Period
