The maps below (excerpted from the UFA’s Interactive Fireworks Restrictions Map) depict the restricted areas in Millcreek where using fireworks is prohibited by ordinance. (North is to the left.) Consistent with the UFA’s recommendations, Millcreek’s ordinance also bans fireworks in unrestricted areas of the City that are

within 300 feet of vacant lots and undeveloped land.

Here are some precautions for enjoying fireworks, especially when the conditions are dry:

  • Use fireworks only in locations allowed by Millcreek’s ordinance.
  • Choose a shooting site that is concrete, asphalt, or hard-packed dirt.
  • Clean up combustible grass, dry leaves and brush from the shooting site.
  • Before using fireworks, water down the shooting site to a 25-foot radius.
  • Have a ready supply of water or a fire extinguisher on hand.
  • Sober adults should handle and fire the fireworks.
  • Soak used fireworks with water; don’t melt your garbage can.

Do NOT use fireworks in any prohibited site. Call 911 in the event of an emergency. Report illegal fireworks to UPD 385-743-700.
