Fireworks are approved for sale in Oregon each year from June 23 through July 6. State-legal fireworks can be purchased from licensed retailers in Salem during this time period. You can also enjoy watching the large professional fireworks displays around the area.
Each year, the Salem Fire Department responds to many fireworks-related incidents. Some of these incidents have resulted in very expensive losses, including damage to vehicles and buildings. Injuries related to the use of fireworks are also a concern. Young ones are most at risk. National statistics indicate children and teenagers are two-and-a-half times more likely than others to suffer a fireworks-related injury.
Protect your family and property from fires and injuries by practicing the “Four BEs” when using fireworks, as recommended by the Oregon State Fire Marshal’s Office and the Salem Fire Department.
