[ARCHIVED] Stay Safe Around Fireworks

The Town would like to remind residents about the hazards of fireworks and the precautions they should take when using them.

"Safe and sane" fireworks are permissible only on private property within Parker Town limits. All other fireworks are illegal and are prohibited in Parker, including on private property. "Safe and sane" fireworks include fountains, wheels, spinners, illuminating torches, dipped sticks, sparklers, snakes and glow worms. If you plan to set off fireworks, please keep the high fire danger in mind and take the following safety precautions:

Light fireworks outdoors in a clear area away from houses, dry leaves or grass and flammable materials.
Ensure that fireworks are completely extinguished by soaking them in water prior to disposal.
Keep matches and lighters out of the reach of children.
Never leave children alone with fireworks, under any circumstances.

Parker Police will be patrolling the area looking for illegal fireworks usage. Fines of up to $600 may be given for each offense. For more information on fireworks regulations, please call the Parker Police Department at 303.841.9800 or email
