The Utah Fireworks Act establishes dates and times for discharging fireworks. Cities may restrict fireworks in specific types of areas within their boundaries. These areas include woodlands with vegetation near homes and urban areas as well as spaces within 200 feet of waterways, trails, canyons, and similar natural features.

The threat of wildfire is extremely high, even after a wet winter and spring. The risk of fire is increased when individuals choose to ignore safety guidelines and light fireworks outside the legal and safe discharge areas. Please use extreme caution, review the map of the prohibited areas, be mindful of wind conditions, and remember to be considerate of those around you.

A person guilty of an infraction can be punished by a fine up to $1,000.

If a person discharges a class C common state approved explosive:

  • Outside the legal discharge dates and times
  • Prohibited areas

Residents can report non-emergency illegal use of fireworks to dispatch at 801-840-4000.
