City reminds residents of fireworks rules
(Jul 03, 2013)
In Westminster, home fireworks that are legal in the State of Colorado are allowed from midnight on July 3 to noon on July 5. If the state bans fireworks because of dry conditions, the City of Westminster will likely follow suit.
Sparklers, fountains and non-exploding pyrotechnics that do not leave the ground and are legal in the State of Colorado are allowed.
Any device that explodes or leaves the ground on its own power is illegal. That means firecrackers, cherry bombs, bottle rockets and similar items are not allowed.
The Westminster Police Department will be enforcing fireworks regulations as part of their normal patrol functions during the summer. From June 21 - July 7, the Westminster Police Department institutes targeted enforcement measures, with two officers assigned specifically to fireworks regulations.
Illegal fireworks will be confiscated and violators may be issued a summons.
Use caution if you use home fireworks. Stay clear of flammable vegetation and structures.
The best, safest way to enjoy the holiday is at a professional fireworks display.
Report use of illegal fireworks to the non-emergency police/fire number, 303-658-4360.
To report a fire, call 911.
