The 4th of July is an anticipated holiday for many each summer. If you plan to celebrate by shooting off some of your own fireworks, it is very important that residents follow the rules, as stated in our City Code. Safety for all residents and children is of the highest importance.
The City of Nevada allows residents to shoot off fireworks during the following dates and times only:
July 1-3: Fireworks can be discharged from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.
July 4: Fireworks can be discharged from Noon to 11 p.m.
A few more important rules about fireworks, as outlined in the City Code, include:
• You must be 18 or older to discharge a DOT 1.4 class consumer firework without parental supervision.
• Any person discharging fireworks assumes responsibility for their operation and the consequences thereof. Do not discharge them in a reckless manner or manner likely to cause death, injury, fire, or property damage.
• Discharge fireworks only on property you own or property where the owner’s consent has been given, and the owner of the property is present.
• No one can discharge fireworks who is showing visible signs or is determined to be intoxicated or under the influence of a drug or narcotic.
The City of Nevada provides a fireworks show at dusk for all area residents to enjoy. Fireworks are shot into the air eastward along 19th Street at the edge of SCORE Park. Spectators can view them from the SCORE Park area and at other places in town that have a good line of sight to the sky east of SCORE.
