City reminds citizens of fireworks safety

The Nampa Fire Department would like to remind the community about the importance of practicing fireworks safety this summer.


Although you can find them in the county, the sale of illegal aerial fireworks is not allowed in the City of Nampa. In the city limits, merchants are regulated by the City of Nampa through ordinance and the Nampa Fire Department. At the state level, it has been determined the sale and use of illegal fireworks without a permit is against the law. Signing a waiver agreeing to not use them in Idaho does not protect from any liability.

Nampa Fire Department Fire Chief Kirk Carpenter said, “We would like everyone to enjoy a fun and safe summer and Fourth of July holiday. If celebrating with fireworks, please remember to be very careful with all levels of fireworks. Even sparklers can cause serious burns or start a fire. We want everyone to enjoy and celebrate safely, without causing harm to themselves or others.”

The use of aerial fireworks is illegal in Idaho without a permit and can cause life-changing harm or damage to person or property. In recent years, one Nampa residence had a $1.5 million loss when an illegally lit aerial firework landed on their roof and destroyed the home.

Individuals who choose to use illegal fireworks can and will be held legally and financially responsible for the injuries or damage the fireworks created.

The National Safety Council has shared additional fireworks safety tips at https://www.nsc.org/home-safety/tools-resources/seasonal-safety/summer/fireworks.
