[ARCHIVED] Fireworks in Ridgefield

Be a good neighbor, follow firework discharge times so that everyone can have a happy Independence Day!

Fireworks may be discharged in Ridgefield on July 4th ONLY from 9am to Midnight.

Fireworks may be on sale in Ridgefield, and throughout the County, before they are permitted to be discharged. Illegal use of fireworks, including using them outside of designated discharge time or device type violation, is subject to a $500 civil fine for first time offenders. 

Clark County provides an interactive map that allows the public to quickly determine the rules for fireworks use based on an address anywhere in the county.

Clark Regional Emergency Services Agency has established this phone number for reporting nuisance fireworks complaints: 360.597.7888. Residents are asked not to call 911 or 311 for the purpose of reporting nuisance fireworks. 

Safety first
Residents and visitors are urged to celebrate the Fourth of July with extra caution because improper use of fireworks can lead to grass or structure fires. 

If you plan to buy fireworks, the best option is to purchase them locally from a stand inspected by the Clark County Fire Marshal’s Office. Fireworks purchased outside the county may not be legal locally.

A few important safety reminders:

  • Always have a bucket of water and water hose ready to douse any fire.
  • Assign a responsible adult to supervise fireworks use.
  • Use fireworks outdoors in a clear area away from buildings, vehicles and dry vegetation.
  • Never aim fireworks at people or structures.
  • Never attempt to alter fireworks or relight “duds” that fail to ignite.
  • Place used fireworks in a bucket of water to soak overnight before disposing of them. These devices can still be smoldering and could start a fire if placed in a trash receptacle.
