If you choose to ring in the New Year with fireworks, please use and dispose of them safely, and be considerate of your neighbors. Even though the fire risk is much lower at this time of year, vegetation and structures can still catch fire! Please keep a charged hose nearby, and a bucket of water to soak spent fireworks. And fireworks can cause serious injuries, so please follow instructions, use legal fireworks, and always have a responsible adult supervising.

For information about where and when fireworks are legal, please visit the County’s page:

Also, Vancouver Police Department’s East Precinct will accept unused fireworks for safe disposal Monday-Friday 8:00a to 5:00 p.m. (except on New Year’s Eve) at 520 SE 155th Ave, Vancouver, WA 98684.
