Park City Fire Code Official Enacts Open Fire and Fireworks Ban

PARK CITY, UTAH (June 16, 2021) - Effective today, and until further notice, fireworks, explosive devices, and open fires are prohibited within Park City limits. Park City’s Chief Building Official/Fire Code Official David Thacker enacted the ban on all open fires, sources of ignition, and fireworks, including the City’s Fourth of July fireworks. This ban aligns with countywide restrictions announced by the Park City Fire District. Given the uncertainty of environmental conditions during the summer months, this order will stay in place until rescinded.

“Due to the below-average precipitation and above-average temperatures, along with the forecasted weather data, and fuel moisture content, fire danger is at a higher level than in previous years,” said Thacker. “Because of the higher risk, Park City Municipal will take all necessary precautions to keep our community safe.”

Park City Council enacted an ordinance in 2016 giving authority to restrict open sources of ignition and fireworks to the City Fire Code Official based on the ever-changing hazardous environmental conditions. These restrictions are pursuant to Park City Ordinance §2016-36 and other applicable statutes in the Wildland Urban Interface Code and the International Fire Code.
