A fireworks refresher for New Year’s in Clark County

The Columbian
Published:

While cities around Clark County have spent the last few years tweaking firework regulations surrounding July 4, most have kept their New Year’s regulations the same.

As the year closes out, here are the areas in Clark County where people can legally launch fireworks:

• From 6 p.m. Dec. 31 until 1 a.m. Jan. 1 in unincorporated Clark County.

• From 6 p.m. Dec. 31 until 1 a.m. Jan. 1 in Battle Ground.

• From 6 p.m. Dec. 31 until 1 a.m. Jan. 1 in Camas.

• From 6 p.m. Dec. 31 until 1 a.m. Jan. 1 in Washougal.

• From 6 p.m. Dec. 31 until 1 a.m. Jan. 1 in Woodland.

• From 6 p.m. Dec. 31 until 1 a.m. Jan. 1 in Amboy.

• From 6 p.m. Dec. 31 until 1 a.m. Jan. 1 in Yacolt.

Only “safe and sane” fireworks are allowed in Washougal, which the city identified as ones that are neither projectile or explosive, such as fountains, sparklers, smokeballs and pinwheels.

This year will be the second that fireworks aren’t allowed on New Year’s Eve in Ridgefield after city councilors changed the city’s regulations.

Vancouver councilors voted to ban personal fireworks sales and use within city limits in 2015, and the law went into effect in 2017. Violators can be fined $500 or more.
