Fireworks dates, hours, restrictions in Layton City

Article Published 06/25/2013
Here are fireworks dates, hours and restrictions for Layton City this summer--

Class “C” (legal in Utah) fireworks can be sold Sunday, June 23 – Saturday, July 27 at 26 different approved sites in Layton City (an all-time high).

Between the hours of 11 a.m. and 11 p.m., from Monday, July 1 – Sunday, July 7. (On Thursday, July 4th, the usage hours are extended to midnight.)
Also, from July 21 – 27, same usage hours. (July 24th hours extended to midnight)

The City Council has approved to amend Title 9 of the city ordinance to prohibit the use of sky lanterns/Chinese lanterns (small hot air balloons with a fire inside) within the city limits.
No fireworks, or open flame use is permitted in Layton City, east of Highway 89 (permanent restriction, since 2004).
Also, in a pro-active approach to preventing wildfires during the current extreme fire conditions, the Layton City Fire Department is enacting a restriction on the use of approved aerial fireworks in portions of Layton City.
Aerial fireworks are banned in the following areas:
1. East of 2000 East from the south city limits to Cherry Lane.
2. East of Fairfield Road north of Cherry Lane to Church Street.
3. East of Church Street from Fairfield Road to Highway 193.
4. North of Highway 193 both sides of Church Street.
5. East of 2400 East from Highway 193 to the north city limits.
6. North of 3450 North to the city limits, east of 2000 East.
A map of the restricted areas will be posted on the City’s Web site.

-Special Options:
Layton City is allowing approved aerial fireworks use (in accordance with the above dates/hours) in two city parks (Andy Adams Park, 1713 E. 1000 North and Sandridge Park, 2555 N. Church Street), to especially cater to those residents who live in a restricted area, as well as any other residents who want to do so there.
It is recommended that park users bring their own bucket of water to properly douse their used fireworks.

-Special cautions:
1. Illegal fireworks (those purchased out-of-state and that can't be bought in Utah) are still illegal and Layton City will be adding extra patrols. The Fire Department and Police Department will be enforcing a ‘zero tolerance’ policy for illegal fireworks within the city limits.
2. Special care is urged using all fireworks, but especially sparklers, because they burn at 1,200 degrees and traditionally cause the most injuries.
3. Be prepared to immediately douse all used fireworks in a bucket full of water.
4. Minors should have adult supervision when using any fireworks.
