Safety Guidelines

  • You must be at least 16 years of age to handle or light fireworks.
  • Fireworks need space from trees, carports, structures, power lines or other obstacles.
  • New aerial fireworks are now lawful. Aerial or “cake” fireworks need to be on a firm, flat level surface and need at least a 30 foot clearance around on the ground and above in the air. Some need as much as 150 feet clearance in the air.
  • Never place a body part above or around a burning firework. Never pickup or throw a burning firework and never look into the tube or stay close to the device during ignition.
  • Do not alter, change or experiment with any firework device and do not allow others to violate the law.
  • Should a firework misfire or not light, do not attempt to re-ignite. Let the firework cool for 30 minutes then place in a bucket of water.
  • Do not ignite fireworks in windy conditions.
  • Wear safety glasses when shooting fireworks.
  • Several children in Utah are burned each year by sparklers. The tip of a sparkler burns at a temperature of more than 1,200 degrees Fahrenheit, hot enough to cause serious burns that may require hospitalization.
  • Children under the age of 12 should not use sparklers without very close adult supervision. Never hold or light more than one sparkler at a time.
  • Teach children to hold a sparkler at arm’s length from their body and not to wave sparklers or run while holding sparklers. Stand at least 6 feet from another person while using sparklers.
  • After a firework display, children should never pick up fireworks that may be left over, they may still be active.
  • Use caution with animals. Excitement, noise and bright flashing lights can cause fear and stress to them.
  • Fireworks are an American tradition. Safety and common sense is extremely important as we celebrate the holidays with fireworks. Shooting fireworks can provide hours of wholesome family entertainment, but must be used carefully and safely. Please contact the Pleasant Grove Fire Department at 385-248-0070 with any fireworks related questions.
