FIREWORKS RESTRICTIONS 2018
There are no current UCFD-imposed fireworks restrictions for the upcoming holidays. This can/may change based upon weather conditions and determinations made by the city Fire Chief or Fire Marshal.
However, there are some new State restrictions that are in effect.
Governor Herbert signed House Bill 38 into Utah State Law on Mar-19-18 (effective May-8-18) in response to numerous fires that were caused by fireworks in 2017.
The law states:
(Line # 194) A person may not discharge class C common state approved explosives (fireworks) in the state except as follows:
(a) between the hours of 11 a.m. and 11 p.m., except that on July 4 and July 24, the hours are 11 a.m. to midnight:
(i) beginning on July 2 and ending on July 5; and
(ii) beginning on July 22 and ending on July 25;
(b) (i) beginning at 11 a.m. on December 31 and ending at 1 a.m. on the following day
(Line # 252) Civil liability.
(1) (a) An individual who negligently, recklessly, or intentionally causes or spreads a fire through discharge of a class C explosive is liable for the cost of suppressing that fire and any damages the fire causes.
(b) If the individual described in Subsection (1)(a) is a minor, the parent or legal guardian having legal custody of the minor is liable for the costs and damages for which the minor is liable under this section.
