Idaho 4th of July Regulations and Reminders
4th of July is right around the corner and it is so important to know the laws and be a responsible partaker in fireworks.
Some rules to remember, and you can always find these on the BLM.gov website: Fireworks are only authorized for use during specific times of the year. Check local ordinances for dates you can use fireworks.
Possessing and/or using fireworks on federal public lands (Bureau of Land Management and Forest Service) is strictly prohibited.
Anyone misusing fireworks can be held liable for damages. Damages often include the costs of putting out the fire.
They give us all a head of warning too, reminding us that the Henry's Creek and Rapid Creek fires were caused by illegal fireworks. For the city of Boise you are allowed to sell "safe and sane fireworks" beginning at midnight June 23 until midnight July 5 and beginning at midnight on December 26 until midnight on January 1.
Distinguishing debris before dumping it is key to help prevent a fire as well.
Have a happy and safe 4th of July!
