    Only Use “Safe and Sane” Fireworks

    In Clark County, approved fireworks use is restricted. Approved fireworks are only permitted from June 28, 2021 through July 4, 2021. Approved fireworks are “safe and sane” fireworks including the following:

    • Sparklers*
    • Fireworks that keep to a small, circular area on the ground and don’t explode in the air

    Do not use any of the following fireworks:

    • Firecrackers
    • Roman candles
    • Sky rockets
    • Cherry bombs

    *While sparklers are “safe and sane” they can also be dangerous. Sparklers alone account for more than one-quarter of emergency room fireworks injuries.

    Unfortunately, even the most cautious person can be injured in a fireworks accident. If you or a loved one are injured in a fireworks accident, you should speak with an experienced personal injury lawyer.

    Practice Safe Fireworks Preparation, Use, and Disposal

    Always exercise caution if you choose to use fireworks. Caution includes safe preparation, use, and disposal. The following tips are from Clark County.

    Fireworks Preparation

    Prepare to use fireworks by doing the following:

    • Check that your fireworks are “safe and sane.”
    • Be considerate of your neighbors, especially those sensitive to loud noises. This includes the elderly, veterans, children, and animals.
    • Have a garden hose connected and ready in case of fire.
    • Never carry fireworks in your pocket.
    • Do not use homemade fireworks.
    • Never shoot fireworks from or into metal or glass containers.
    • Keep pets indoors in a safe space.
    • Place fireworks on a flat, hard surface like a parking lot. Only use fireworks in a clear area away from buildings, vehicles, and dry brush.
    • Stay sober. Plan on avoiding alcohol and/or drugs if you are going to use fireworks.

    Fireworks Use

    Practice safe fireworks use by doing the following:

    • Only use fireworks under adult supervision.
    • Do not allow young children to play with fireworks.
    • Light one firework at a time and quickly move away. Communicate with your group so that everyone knows when a firework will be lit and go off.
    • Maintain a safe distance after lighting a firework.
    • Do not immediately approach a firework that fails to light. Stay away for several minutes.
    • Never use fireworks indoors.
    • If clothes catch on fire—stop, drop, and roll.
    • Treat burns with cool water and gauze. If the burn blisters, seek medical help.

    Fireworks Disposal

    Practice safe fireworks disposal by doing the following:

    • Place discharged fireworks into a bucket of water overnight. Make certain they do not re-ignite.
    • Make sure there are no remaining sparks, embers, or heated debris that could cause something to ignite later.
    • Clean up litter left behind from fireworks.

    Fireworks are a popular celebration item. We hope the above tips help you stay safe while using fireworks to celebrate. If you are injured due to the fault of someone else, contact an experienced personal injury lawyer.
