Use of fireworks prohibited countywide

Coconino County is in Stage 2 Fire Restrictions which prohibits the use of fireworks.


There are several wildfires currently burning throughout the state and northern Arizona. The National Weather Service has continued to issue “Red Flag” warnings due to hot, dry and windy weather across the region.


“The people of Coconino County greatly value our public lands and treasure our forests,” said Chairwoman of the Board Liz Archuleta. “We know too well the damage human-caused fire can have. I want to urge everyone to be extremely careful this holiday weekend and to please refrain from using any fireworks. The potential damage, loss of property and even the loss of life is too great to risk.”


Coconino County asks everyone to follow the Stage 2 fire restrictions, including the ban on the use of fireworks. Residents and visitors are asked to use their best judgment when considering whether to engage in any activity that could spark a fire. People can be held legally responsible for causing any wildfire.
