PROVO, Utah — Provo Fire and Rescue used social media on Sunday to inform residents of the city’s fireworks restrictions ahead of the Fourth of July holiday weekend.

The fire department provided the map below to show where July fireworks are banned within Provo.

“Please use one of our approved city parks to do fireworks,” said Provo Fire and Rescue’s post. The map highlights parks where the city will permit July fireworks.

For the holiday weekend, officials said residents can only set off fireworks on the following days and times:

  • July 2,3 and 5 from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.
  • July 4 from 11 a.m. to midnight.

Only Class-C, state-approved fireworks are allowed to be set off during those times.

The fire department also reminded residents that setting off fireworks in restricted areas is a misdemeanor that comes with a $1,000 fine.
