Firework Ban in La Madera

The La Madera Fire District is situated in an unincorporated area of Sandoval County.  On June 7th, 2018 the Sandoval County Board of County Commissioners issued resolution No. 6-7-18.10 banning and restricting the use of certain fireworks in unincorporated areas of the county.

The fireworks ban prohibits the use of missile-type rockets, helicopters, aerial spinners, stick-type rockets and ground audible devices. In addition, the fireworks ban also limits the use of ground and hand-held sparkling and smoke device type fireworks to areas that are paved, barren or have a readily accessible source of water nearby.

“The Sandoval County Fire Department urges residents to adhere to the fireworks ban,” said Sandoval County Fire Chief James Maxon. “There are numerous public events that have specific safety measures in place to prevent fireworks related fires. I encourage folks to head out to a public event to enjoy fireworks in a safe environment, so we can protect the beautiful lands of Sandoval County from fire.”
