Fireworks Prohibited in the Avenues

20 June 2018

A reminder to all our neighbors that fireworks restrictions are still in place this year. The City's map of restrictions shows fireworks are banned north of S. Temple and east of 1300 East. 
There's pleny of dry fuel in the lawns, parks, and especially open spaces above our Avenues and there are homes situated near draws and gullies that are loaded with tinder-dry grasses and shrubs begging to burn.  

If you plan to use fireworks somewhere else than on the Avenues, remember that the dates for legal use have also changed. Fireworks may only be discharged in Salt Lake City on the following days:
July 2 through July 5 — 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. (until Midnight on July 4th)
July 22 through July 25 — 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. (until Midnight on July 24th)

See https://slcfire.com/fireworks/ for more information. This restriction includes sparklers. Concerned neighbors please call 801-799-3000 to report fireworks being set off anywhere in the Avenues.
