Fourth of July Safety

Rocky Mountain Community Radio

The Garfield County Sheriff’s Office urges the public to exercise caution for themselves, their neighbors, and their pets this Fourth of July. It is illegal for members of the public to possess or set off fireworks even on their property. It is always prohibited to possess or set off fireworks or any incendiary device on public lands. Incendiaries always pose a risk of starting wildfires, especially from May to September when it is both dry and windy. It is also illegal to sell or propose the sale of fireworks in Colorado. Handheld sparklers are permitted with localized exceptions, however officials remind the public that even these can cause significant burns. It is also important to make sure that your pets are safe if there is an official fireworks show held by the town. Make sure all pets remain indoors and can’t run away from home over a fence or through a window. If your pet goes missing please report it to your local police department. More safety information can be found at Division of Fire Prevention and Control or dfpc.org.
