The City Council passed an ordinance (PDF) regulating, preventing, and banning the discharge of fireworks or use of any ignition source including lighters, matches, sky lanterns, and smoking materials within certain areas of the City. State Code regulates the lawful dates and times of discharge.
Based upon the exceptionally dry and hot conditions, and the dry state of the fuels in our city, the Fire Marshal for Unified Fire Authority (UFA) has recommended that Millcreek consider further restriction of the discharge of fireworks this summer, from 900 East eastward. The Millcreek City Council is unanimous that this year, the health, safety, and general welfare of our community, which we are charged to protect, require an exceptional restriction of fireworks.
Our new restrictions will be enforced by UFA firefighters and UPD officers working together, and fines for violating the restriction are substantial. We urge everyone to abide by the restriction and not discharge fireworks in Millcreek east of 900 East this summer.
