  • Fireworks Safety
    As the 4th of July draws near, many Oregonians choose to safely celebrate our independence by attending a professional fireworks display. To those who choose to use retail consumer fireworks, State Fire Marshal Jim Walker reminds you to only use legal fireworks and know how to use them safely. Every year in Oregon, celebrations turn to tragedy due to fireworks injuries or fires. In 2016, there were 192 fireworks-related fires causing more than $519,000 in property damage. Over the past five years, fireworks-related fires were responsible for more than $2.1 million in property loss. If you choose to use Oregon legal fireworks, the best way to protect your family and property is to “Keep it Legal and Keep it Safe!”
