Safety First this Fourth of July

June 26, 2024

Firework-related fires are still possible this Fourth of July, even though we’ve had a cool, damp summer.

If you’re planning to celebrate with fireworks, please keep these safety recommendations in mind:

  • Fireworks are legal on Camano, but only for three days
    • July 3, from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m.;
    • July 4 from 9 a.m. to midnight;
    • and July 5 from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m.
  • Fireworks can cause fires (even if it rained recently). Always have a hose nearby, and a bucket of water to drench and extinguish used fireworks.
  • Don’t hold fireworks in your hand.
  • Don’t shoot fireworks at other people, pets, houses, cars, or anything else that could burn or catch fire.

If you accidentally catch something on fire or get burned, call 911.

Please note: Changes to firework use in Island County will take place in 2025
