Fireworks use is illegal throughout South County Fire’s service area: Brier, Edmonds, Lynnwood, Mill Creek, Mountlake Terrace and unincorporated southwest Snohomish County.

Yard signs will be available for residents to pick up June 24 – June 28, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., while supplies last at these South County Fire stations:

  • Downtown Edmonds Fire Station: 275 Sixth Ave. N.
  • Mariner Fire Station: 12310 Meridian Ave. S, Everett.
  • Hilltop Fire Station, 20510 Damson Rd., Lynnwood.
  • Mill Creek Fire Station: 1020 153rd St. SE, Mill Creek.
  • Mountlake Terrace Fire Station: 5902 232nd St. SW.
  • Lynnwood Civic Center Station: 18800 44th Ave. W.

In unincorporated southwest Snohomish County, lighting fireworks has been illegal since 2021, but fireworks sales will still be allowed this year. In May, the Snohomish County Council changed the law to make fireworks sales illegal in southwest unincorporated areas, but that ban will not start until 2025. That’s because any fireworks ordinance more restrictive than state law cannot take effect until one year after adoption.

You can find more information on fireworks rules including a map of banned areas, frequently asked questions and a variety of yard signs to download on South County Fire’s website: Fireworks Use Is Illegal Here | South County Fire (southsnofire.org)

South County Fire provides fire and emergency medical services to nearly 300,000 residents of Brier, Edmonds, Lynnwood, Mill Creek, Mountlake Terrace and unincorporated southwest Snohomish County.
