Fireworks in Tumwater

A friendly reminder to residents and visitors celebrating Independence Day in Lacey, Olympia, and Tumwater – fireworks may not be sold, purchased, or discharged in our communities.

Novelty devices such as snakes, glow worms, and party poppers are allowed. However, sparklers and all other types of fireworks, including those purchased elsewhere, may not be used in our cities.

Like most cities, the number of calls to 911 increases on the Fourth of July holiday. With voter-approved regulations in place, fireworks complaints may add to the call volume. When there is high demand for law enforcement, fire, and emergency medical services – we place our highest priority on protecting lives and preserving property.

It’s important for our community to know that Tumwater Fire and Police Departments will do their best to respond to complaints about fireworks. The reality is there simply is not enough staffing in either department to respond to each illegal fireworks and noise incident around the Fourth of July. Calls for immediate emergency life safety assistance must be prioritized to ensure public safety

Reducing the number of noise and illegal fireworks complaints to 911 will allow emergency calls to be answered as quickly as possible. To report the sale or discharge of fireworks in Tumwater, call 360.704.2740. Call 9-1-1 to report a fire or injury.
