Chelan County Prohibits Discharge of Fireworks

Sheriff Brian Burnett reports the Board of County Commissioners has enacted a prohibition on the discharge of fireworks in the unincorporated areas of Chelan County effective June 27, 2016, and until further notice. 

Sheriff Burnett supports the decision of the Board, based on the severity of fires in recent years, and in order to protect life and property.  Although it was a difficult decision for all involved, Sheriff Burnett is hoping the outcome will ensure a safe and happy Fourth of July Weekend for all Chelan County residents and visitors.
