Fireworks Dos and Don’ts in the City of Ferndale

Fireworks Dos and Don’ts in the City of Ferndale

As we approach Independence Day, it is important for everyone to celebrate in a safe and legal way.

Please remember the only legal times to shoot off fireworks in the city are on July 4th from 9am to midnight.

Here is a graphic showing what fireworks are legal and which ones are not but a good rule of thumb is that if you can buy them at the stand at the grocery store, you can shoot them off. Many that come from the reservation, such as bottle rockets and firecrackers are not legal for use in the City.

Thank you and remember to stay safe this July 4th!
