Additional Areas Around Everett Have Fireworks Bans This Year

Everett Fire

The lighter shaded areas between Everett and Mukilteo and south of Everett beyond 128th are all a no-go for any type of fireworks. Map from South County Fire.

For years so-called “Safe and Sane” fireworks of all types have been banned in the city limits of Everett, Washington.

They were however legal in unincorporated Snohomish County and with many areas of south Everett having “islands” of County land things could get a bit confusing. That’s no longer the case. Here’s a snip from a reminder put out by South County Fire…

New in 2021, all fireworks are banned in the unincorporated areas of southwest Snohomish County. The Snohomish County Council approved this change after asking the public to weigh in on the issue in an advisory vote on the 2019 General Election ballot. More than 59% of ballots cast in our area favored banning fireworks.

Fireworks bans are also in place in Brier, Edmonds, Everett, Lynnwood, Mill Creek, Mountlake Terrace, Mukilteo and Woodway.

South County Fire is working hard to get the word out on the new fireworks ban this year.

Since this is the first year for the ban in many areas of unincorporated Snohomish County South County Fire has put together a lot of resources and information you can find here.
While they last you can even order a “Fireworks Banned” yard sign.

The signs are available online only and not at the fire stations. They are only available to those within the South County Fire service area. (Sorry but not available to those within the Everett City limits). You can get more information and order your sign here.
