In the state of Washington, fireworks are subject to state laws and local county or city laws. Residents living in the City of Mill Creek are not able to purchase, possess, or discharge fireworks.
As 4th of July celebrations are approaching, Snohomish Regional Fire & Rescue wants to remind residents of the laws and regulations within its fire district.
According to fire district spokeswoman Heather Chadwick, there is a new boundary where residents are not allowed to discharge fireworks in parts of unincorporated Snohomish County.
You can use an interactive map to see if you live within the new boundary: Snohomish Regional Fire & Rescue - http://www.srfr.org - Fireworks Safety http://www.srfr.org/preparedness_education/safety_information_emergency_preparedness/fireworks_safety/index.cfm.
Within the City of Monroe and the City of Lake Stevens the discharge of fireworks is allowed only on July 4th from 9 a.m. until midnight. Visit the city websites for additional local regulations that are in place.
For the safest viewing of fireworks, Snohomish Regional recommends attending a public display fireworks show, Chadwick said.
If your family wants to enjoy a small fireworks display at home, Snohomish Regional recommends the types of fireworks you can buy at a local fireworks stand, and advises that ignition should only be conducted by adults wearing protective eyewear.
Additionally, never pick up a firework "dud" and be a good neighbor by cleaning up your fireworks debris after your celebration, Chadwick said.
