LAYTON, Utah — Layton City Fire and Poice Departments want to remind residents they are enforcing the highest firework restriction level allowed by the state of Utah. 

A Facebook post by Layton City said a firework ban is in place east of Highway 89. Furthermore, the ban includes aerial fireworks in high-hazard zones. Refer to the map on the Layton City website for exact locations

That said, residents can discharge fireworks from 11:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. July 2- July 5, and July 22- July 25, 2022. Also, on July 4 and 24, 2022 the discharge of fireworks is allowed at midnight. 

Additionally, citations will be issued for violating firework restrictions, a Class B misdemeanor. Penalties for this violation include a fine up to $1,000 and possibly being held civilly liable for injury or property damage. 

The city would like residents to use extreme caution when setting off fireworks.
