City reminds citizens of fireworks safety

The city of Nampa and Nampa Fire Department want to remind the community of 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 if used.

Nampa Fire Department Deputy Chief of Operations Kirk Carpenter said, “The city of Nampa wants our community to enjoy the summer season and the 4th of July holiday celebrating the freedoms we all enjoy every day. We want to remind our citizens to celebrate your independence without causing harm to others.”

The use of illegal fireworks can cause life changing harm or damage to person or property. Two years ago, 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 their fireworks create.

Remember, be safe, have fun and enjoy Nampa!
