Other areas that are restricted to fireworks include: South Jordan City property, Salt Lake County parks and facilities, as well as areas through and around the Jordan River Parkway.

SAFETY TIPS: PROTECTING YOUR HOME
Creating defensible space is clearing or modifying the vegetation around your home to reduce fire threat. Defensible space could be your properly-maintained backyard, but another property owner may need to provide 200 feet of defensible space around their property depending on whether they have tall trees, structures, etc. The first 30 feet around your home is the primary ignition zone. Making sure you clear the vegetation around your home provides our firefighters with a safe place to defend your home from approaching wildland fire.
