Fireworks Regulations for Vancouver, WA for 2015

Here I am advocating for kindness to animals on the 4th of July
The dreaded 4th of July is upon us. Here are the new, and hopefully enforced, regulations for my home, Vancouver, Washington.

As the Executive Director of Dogs Against Fireworks (DAF), I have worked tirelessly to get regulations tightened. I should only suffer for one day, here in the City of Vancouver.... IF THEY ENFORCE THE LAW!

Just a reminder about the new fireworks rules for INSIDE THE CITY LIMITS:
Fireworks sales in the City of Vancouver is three days long, from July 2 through July 4. Retail stands open at 9 a.m. and close at 11 p.m. each day.
- USE 
Inside the Vancouver city limits, fireworks use is ONLY legal on July 4 from 9 a.m. to midnight. Use is not legal on any other day of the year, including New Year's Eve.
Individuals who use fireworks on any day other than July 4 in the City of Vancouver may be subject to fines beginning at $250. Fines for use of illegal fireworks begin at $500.
Go here for more information:

I have heard that if people break this law, you can call 911 and report them. I hate to do that but I may just keep my cell phone handy while I am hiding in my crate before and after the 4th. My crate also serves as the DAF headquarters, by the way.

This is what you'll see in tents all over Clark County.
They must all be dog haters! 

Please, be kind, Vancouver!

Love, Cinnamon


  1. Where can I find the law that tells WHAT KIND of fireworks are legal in the city? They are shooting them above my house. How can they do that?
