4th of July Fireworks on Ban

kit

Tomorrow is the 4th of July and the Yakima County Sheriff’s Office is issuing a reminder:

“With the July 4th celebrations and festivities fast approaching, we would like all of the good people of our community to remember that fireworks are banned and therefore illegal to possess or discharge in all unincorporated areas of Yakima County. Many people still believe it is legal to possess and light fireworks on the Yakama Indian Reservation, and we don’t want people unwittingly running afoul of the law. The only persons who can legally light fireworks on the Yakama Indian Nation reservation are enrolled members of the Yakama Indian Nation or another federally-recognized Indian tribe since jurisdictional limitations prevent local law enforcement officers from enforcing such a ban against enrolled Native Americans on the Yakama Indian Reservation. The Yakima Sheriff’s deputies don’t enjoy being spoil sports on this national holiday, but are duty-bound to see that our laws are abided for the safety and security of all.  We want everyone to have a safe and enjoyable Independence Day holiday, but please be certain that it is a legal location to possess and light fireworks before doing so.”
