Have a Fire Safe 4th of July

Have a Fire Safe 4th of July!

4th of July weekend is here, and with fire season beginning much earlier this year, our Office of Emergency Services has a few tips for enjoying your holiday weekend safely.

All personal fireworks are illegal in Nevada County. Please only enjoy the planned and permitted firework events in our community. If you see anyone transporting or using fireworks without a valid use permit, please notify local law enforcement. Make sure you properly put out any cigarettes, matches, or legal campfires, and always check with campgrounds first to see if campfires are allowed or what safety measures they may have in place. When barbecuing, make sure your charcoal or propane grill is properly working, and never throw hot charcoal briquettes in the trash can. If you are traveling, please make sure you don’t drag vehicle chains that could create sparks. Please note that Bridgeport section of the South Yuba River State Park has been closed due to the Rices Fire.
