BATTLE GROUND — Fireworks regulations in the city of Battle Ground allow residents to use fireworks two days over the Independence Day Holiday – July 3 from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. and July 4 from 9 a.m. to midnight. The sale of fireworks within the city is permitted July 1 through July 4.
Regulations for the sale and use of fireworks vary in individual municipalities within Clark County, including unincorporated Battle Ground. An online interactive map allows the public to easily determine fireworks use regulations based on any street address within Clark County. Additionally, fireworks stands in the city will have signs posted outlining when fireworks can be used legally within the city and in neighboring unincorporated areas of Clark County.
“Improper use of fireworks can lead to unintended injuries and structure or grass fires,” said Battle Ground Fire Marshal Chris Drone. “Being prepared, safe, and responsible is key to a fun and worry-free 4th of July celebration.”
Fireworks stands are inspected by the fire marshal. Residents are encouraged to purchase fireworks locally; fireworks purchased outside the City or Clark County’s jurisdictions may not be safe or legal for use locally.
Fireworks regulations, safety tips and helpful links, including information on how to identify illegal fireworks, is available on the city’s website at www.cityofbg.org/fireworks. The use of fireworks in City parks or on school district property is prohibited.
