Test Fireworks - Keep it Legal, Keep it Safe

In Oregon, retail fireworks can be sold between June 23 and July 6. Even with all the recent rain, fireworks can be dangerous.

Here are a few important safety tips:

  • BE PREPARED before lighting fireworks: Keep water available by using a garden hose or bucket.
  • BE SAFE when lighting fireworks: Keep children and pets away from fireworks.
  • BE RESPONSIBLE after lighting fireworks: Never re-light a dud. Wait 15 to 20 minutes then soak it in a bucket of water before disposal.
  • BE AWARE: Use only legal fireworks and use them only in legal places (not in City or State Parks).
