Respect county fireworks ban this July 4th

The Chelan County Fire Marshal's Office reminds the public that while fireworks are readily available for purchase, they are banned throughout the county.

The use of personal fireworks is not allowed in any of the unincorporated areas of Chelan County, as well as the cities of Cashmere, Wenatchee and Leavenworth and on federal lands.

There may be legal consequences for any injuries or damages caused by the irresponsible use of fireworks. Consequences can range from being charged with an infraction to a felony, as well as monetary penalties or claims. See the Chelan County Code for details.

There are approximately 1,000 fireworks-related emergencies across the state each year, with fireworks-related fires causing millions of dollars in damages, according to the Washington State Fire Marshal’s Office.

In addition, the National Interagency Coordination Center, which serves as the focal point for coordinating the mobilization of resources to wildland fires and other incidents throughout the United States, predicts Chelan County and most of Washington will be under "above normal conditions" for wildfire from July through September.
