Fireworks Safety

If lighting fireworks is included in your plans, please make sure you’re doing it safely and protecting all of your friends, neighbors, and our Colorado open spaces and wildlife by only using permissible fireworks, purchased from a Colorado licensed fireworks store, stand, or tent. Information on fire restrictions and bans can change rapidly. The most current information can and should be obtained from your local county sheriff or the forest service.

Leave the big shows to the pro’s!
