Fireworks Public Safety Announcement

Did you know...

Each year more than 12,000 fireworks-related injuries, half of them children, are treated in hospital emergency rooms? Approximately 26% of the children injured are innocent bystanders.

Something as simple as a sparkler burns at temperatures of up to 1,800 degrees. Hot enough to melt gold.

Fireworks cause more than $35 million in property loss each year.

Possession and use of any firework, including Safe & Sane, is illegal in Chelan County and the City of Leavenworth. It is a crime that is punishable by a fine or incarceration in County jail or both.

Chelan County Fire District #3 strongly urges residents and visitors to keep our beautiful area safe from fires caused by fireworks. If you wish to dispose of fireworks, please contact the Fire Department at 509-548-7711.

Be smart and leave fireworks to the professionals!

Report all fireworks to the Chelan County Sheriff’s Department at 509-663-9911
