Keep it Legal, Keep it Safe
The Office of State Fire Marshal, Oregon fire service, Keep
Oregon Green, natural resource agencies, Oregon fireworks whole
salers, and safety experts encourage Oregonians to "Keep it Legal
and Keep it Safe" when using fireworks. The 2016 Oregon fireworks
sales season opens Thursday, June 23 and runs through Wednes
day, July 6. The OSFM and their partners want everyone to know
what fireworks are legal in Oregon, where they are permitted, and
the important steps to take for fireworks safety.
"People often forget that legal fireworks can only be purchased
from Oregon permitted fireworks retailers and stands," says Chief
Deputy State Fire Marshal Mariana Ruiz-Temple. "And, regulations
limit where those fireworks may be used. For example, fireworks
are prohibited on all Oregon beaches, in parks, and Gampgrounds."
July 4th holiday forest visitors are advised to leave all fireworks at
home. The use of fireworks is prohibited on all national forestland,
and most other public lands. "Fireworks compound the threat to
already dry forests," states Keep Oregon Green President Kristin
Babbs. "Enjoy fireworks where they belong: on the pavement-
safely away from houses, vehicles, and flammable vegetation."
Oregon law bans possession, use, or sale of fireworks that fly,
explode, or travel more, than six'feet on the ground or 12 inches into..
the air. Fireworks commonly called bottle rockets, Roman Candies,
and firecrackers are ILLEGAL in Oregon.
There were 227 reported fireworks-related fires in Oregon during
2015, resulting in 28 injuries and more than $423,000 in property
damage. Over the past five years, from 2011 through 2015, there
were 924 reported fireworks-related fires in Oregon resulting in one
death, 161 civilian injuries, and more than $2.7 million in property
Officials may seize illegal fireworks and fine offenders up to $500
per violation. Those who misuse fireworks or allow fireworks to
cause damage are liable and may be required to pay fire suppres
sion costs or other damage. Parents are also liable for fireworks
damage caused by their children.
The OSFM encourages everyone to use the four B's of safe
• Be Prepared before lighting fireworks: keep water available by
using a garden hose or bucket.
• Be Safe when lighting fireworks: keep children and pets
away from fireworks.
• Be Responsible after lighting fireworks: never relight a dud.
Wait 15 to 20 minutes then soak it in a bucket of water
• Be Aware: use only legal fireworks and use them only in legal

We Dig...Working For You!
1. Pull the shades or close the drapes to block out the flashes of light.
2. Put soothing music on the radio or TV to keep pets calm and over-ride
the sounds of the fireworks.
3. If you have a finished basement, put your pets downstairs where the
sound will be less obvious and light flashes can’t be seen.
4. Give your pet a high reward treat or toy for distraction. If your pet is
used to chewing raw meaty bones, this might be a goodtime to give
them a fresh bone. You can also fill a Kong type toy with pumpkin or
pureed food that has been frozen.
5. Put a few drops of lavender oil in a diffuser, as this oil is very soothing. •
6. If you need to take your pets outside for potty time, be sure they are on ■
a leash and in a secured yard. Scared pets can bolt and lose their sense
7. Be sure your pets are wearing identification and are microchipped in
case they get lost.
' 8. If fireworks and celebrations were held close to your yard, be sure to •
check your yard for fireworks and debris before putting pets outside in
9. Please don’t EVER take your pets to a fireworks display. Enjoy the
fireworks with your family, but don’t include your dogs, on this
