[ARCHIVED] Fireworks Ban: Avoid Independence Day Accidents

Stay safe on the Fourth of July, and remember that the City bans the use and possession of all fireworks without a permit.

The ban encompasses all fireworks, including sparklers, cones, fountains and Roman candles.

Adopted in 1993, the City’s ban aims to keep citizens and property safe. Most surrounding cities also ban fireworks for personal use.

Eastside Fire & Rescue will increase its patrols within Issaquah and its service area to seek compliance with bans.

On the Fourth of July, non-emergency fireworks calls can overload 911. Only call 911 if you need emergency assistance and need immediate help from police, fire or medics. Unnecessary 911 calls block people with real emergencies from reaching 911. To report non-emergencies, such as illegal fireworks, call 425-837-3200.
