[ARCHIVED] Fireworks Ban: Stay Safe on Independence Day

Fireworks 300x300

Stay safe on the Fourth of July — and remember the City of Issaquah’s ban on 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.

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.

In addition, sky lanterns are banned in Issaquah and throughout Eastside Fire & Rescue’s service area, which includes Issaquah.

A sky lantern — a miniature, unmanned balloon that relies on an open flame as a heat source — cannot be controlled once released. It can start a fire if it lands in trees, on grass, brush, rooftops or other combustible materials while the fuel cell is burning.
