Free ‘Fireworks Banned’ yard signs available from South County Fire

Residents of South County Fire’s service area can order free fireworks ban yard signs online at

The deadline for orders is June 28, 9 a.m.

Fireworks use is banned throughout southwest Snohomish County. Signs are available while supplies last for residents of the cities of Brier, Edmonds, Lynnwood and Mountlake Terrace and unincorporated communities served by South County Fire.

Residents can also download and print their own signs to post in yards or windows. South County Fire’s website has a variety of designs to choose from, including signs specifically for pet owners and veterans.



  1. Supposedly the police can enforce this by handing out $500 fines to first time offenders in Edmonds. Suspect not much of that will happen, and the police will be confiscating some fireworks and doing some “education.” Just don’t see the police giving out a $500 fine to a 12 year old for setting off a lady finger fire cracker that his parents let him buy on the Reservation. (Maybe ticket should go to the parent)?

    One would think that blowing off a few fingers and putting out a few eyes every year would be education and deterrence enough for people, but no such luck. People just love to do stupid and dangerous things in the name of celebration, like getting loaded on booze or drugs and setting off fire over priced firecrackers and bottle rockets. Too much money and too few “smarts.”

  2. Not a real ban unless the selling of fireworks is also outlawed.

    I don’t understand how fireworks are banned if they are still allowed to be sold. I just drove past a “TNT Fireworks” stand operating in Edmonds. How is this stand allowed to operate inside the county? Start by fining these stands, not individuals. These stands should, at the very least, be required to inform people of the ban and the associated fee. Signs should also be posted at the stands, not at people’s homes.
