Fireworks are illegal in Las Vegas and throughout Clark County, except for the Safe-N-Sane variety during the week before July 4th. Each county in Nevada regulates fireworks differently. Many fireworks available outside of Clark County are illegal here. Firecrackers, bottle rockets, Roman sails, M-80 and M-100 are prohibited locally.
If they explode, spin uncontrollably, fly, or are not labeled as “safe and sane”, they are likely to be illegal. Fireworks of any kind are not allowed in Clark County Wetlands Park or other local parks, or on public lands in the region, including Mount Charleston, Lake Mead and Red Rock. Commission President Marilyn Kirkpatrick noted that a boy lost a hand last year in a fireworks accident. Neighborhood concerns about noise, trash, and the use of illegal fireworks purchased outside the Las Vegas Valley are also common.
All fireworks purchased or lit in Clark County must bear a “Safe and Sane” emblem AND must be purchased in the booths, which certifies that they have been approved by the fire department. Fireworks of any kind are not allowed in Clark County Wetlands Park or other local parks, or on public land in the region, including Mount Charleston, Lake Mead and Red Rock Canyon. Fireworks purchased from vendors located outside Clark County are likely to be illegal, including those purchased from vendors in Pahrump, Amargosa Valley and Moapa Band of Paiutes. The public is also encouraged to enjoy professionally licensed fireworks shows that are scheduled to take place during the July 4th holiday in the Las Vegas Valley.
Sellers can only sell fireworks from June 28 to July 4, the same period during which it is legal to light them. Even when fireworks are used in the acceptable time frame and places, people can only set off fireworks labeled “safe and sane”. The deadline for fireworks applies throughout Clark County, the Las Vegas Valley and neighboring jurisdictions. Campaign materials are posted on the website, including flyers in English and Spanish, fireworks safety tips, and public service announcements on television.
Fireworks sold in TNT or Phantom Fireworks booths this season have been tested and approved in local jurisdictions, and booths are inspected during the holiday for compliance. Clark County warns of a crackdown on illegal fireworks this July 4, as “hasn't been seen in more than two decades. This person should always remain sober, and anyone who has consumed alcohol should not participate in the triggering of fireworks.
