Fireworks cautions and restrictions across Garfield County
Garfield County frequently experiences drought and extremely critical fire weather. In addition, frequent fire weather watches from the National Weather Service and Red Flag Warnings have accompanied the drying of area lands.
In Colorado, even on private lands, it is illegal to possess or ignite any form of firework that is propelled into the air. Whether the entire incendiary, or only a portion of it is fired into the air, it is illegal, unless you are a licensed professional with a valid permit.
Fireworks prohibited on federal lands
Fireworks of all kinds are not legal on Bureau of Land Management, U.S. Forest Service, or National Park Service lands. Explosives and exploding targets are also prohibited year round on all national forest lands.
