With most public displays canceled, King County Fire Marshal stresses fireworks safety.
The COVID-19 pandemic has nearly eliminated what's typically the safest way to celebrate the Fourth of July holiday--namely, joining a festive crowd to watch a professional fireworks show. If you live in an area that allows consumer use of fireworks, please do so with caution and follow local rules and regulations. Also, keep in mind that social distancing and wearing a mask are now required in public.
"This is not a normal year," says King County Fire Marshal Chris Ricketts. "We're limited in how we celebrate safely as a community. People who use fireworks at their homes and in their neighborhoods need to remember that it's essential to practice fireworks safety. Last year, fireworks resulted in 36 injuries in King County overall, and two deaths in unincorporated King County. We don't want that to happen again!"
Although he strongly advises against using consumer fireworks, Ricketts offered a few instructions to legally and safely do so:
- Fireworks are banned in many King County cities (check with your local jurisdiction).
- Fireworks purchased from approved firework stands can only be discharged in unincorporated King County on July 4, and they must be sold by Washington State licensed retailers at approved permitted stands.
- Fireworks not purchased from a state-licensed, fireworks retailor cannot legally be discharged in unincorporated King County. They may be considered explosive material.
- If it has a stick or fins and it goes up, or if it explodes, it is illegal in Washington State.
- Fireworks are not allowed in King County Parks, per King County Code.
- Fireworks may be discharged only on July 4 from 9 a.m. to midnight.
- Fireworks sales can legally start at noon, June 28 through 11 p.m. After that, sales are allowed 9 a.m.-11 p.m., through July 4. You must be at least 16 years old, with photo identification, to purchase fireworks.
If you choose to buy and discharge fireworks, follow these safety tips:
- Always have a responsible adult light all fireworks.
- Use eye protection.
- Have a charged garden hose or a fire extinguisher handy.
- Use fireworks outdoors only--away from buildings, houses with wood exteriors, trees, and dry fields.
- Avoid aerial fireworks.
- Light one item at a time, move away quickly, and have everyone keep a safe distance.
- If a device does not light or fire, an adult should wait at least five minutes before approaching it.
- Clean up all debris and soak used fireworks in water before disposing of them.
- Keep pets safe (Regional Animal Services of King County provides information about fireworks safety for pets).
King County is planning a Culvert Replacement Project at 162 Ave SE at SE 166 CT. The three-month project is scheduled for construction this summer between roughly late July and early fall.
This project is located between the Fairwood Greens and Woodside neighborhoods. The culvert carries water directly under the road. Construction will require a full road closure in the vicinity of 166th Court to allow crews room to remove and replace the underground culvert. Traffic will be detoured during construction. In addition, several utility companies have begun the process of temporarily relocating utilities away from the culvert area. Utility relocation is needed so that crews can remove and replace the culvert without disrupting underground utilities.
