State announces fireworks purchase, discharge dates for 2022
SALT LAKE CITY — Utah State Fire Marshal Ted Black announced the 2022 fireworks purchase and discharge dates on Monday.
According to state fire marshal’s website, Class C fireworks can only be sold on the following dates:
- June 24 through July 25
- December 29 through December 31
The discharge of fireworks is between the hours of 11 a.m. and 11 p.m. Unless otherwise noted.
- July 2 – July 5 (The hours on July 4 are extended to midnight.)
- July 22 – July 25 (The hours on July 24 are extended to midnight.)
- December 31 (The hours are extended until 1 a.m. on January 1.)
Black tells KSL News Radio that if you light fireworks off outside of those dates, you could be fined up to $1,000.
Another dry summer is forecasted for 2022. Black is hopeful that all Utahns will be responsible in how they discharge fireworks this year.
“Look around your environment,” he said. “Whether you are camping, or lighting fireworks or whatever you are doing that could potentially cause a fire. And if you are in a hazardous environment, choose another way to celebrate.”
He recommends that you check your city’s website to see exactly what fire restrictions are in place where you live.
