UPDATED: Grays Harbor fireworks displays and regulations

June 29, 2012

Fireworks regulations differ between cities throughout Grays Harbor, check with your local fire or police department to be sure the fireworks you purchase are legal to possess and discharge and only purchase legal fireworks. Grays Harbor County follows the state regulations regarding fireworks.

State Regulations

Fireworks sales around the state will begin today and continue until 9pm on July 5th. State Fire Marshal Charles M. Duffy said that this year, 900 retail fireworks stand licenses were issued.  He says that, it’s a good time to remind everyone that, “Personal fireworks require personal responsibility.”

While at home, children should not be able to readily access fireworks in the home. Store your fireworks in a secure location to prohibit access, or purchase the day intended to use the fireworks.

Don’t take any chances Duffy says, “Stay away from high powered illegal explosive devices such as M80’s or homemade device, while the 4th of July happens only once a year, these devices can cause a life altering injury that can last you a lifetime.”
