City Of Twin Falls Reminds Residents Of Firework Rules
Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KSVT-TV ) With the fourth of July just around the corner, the City of Twin Falls is issuing its annual warning.
Nothing that flies and/or explodes will be tolerated.
Over the years, the city has banned any fireworks that propel themselves in the air or explode.
Due to overwhelming concerns from citizens, the city has now adopted a zero tolerance policy on the matter.
If caught, you will receive a ticket of 100 dollars and must pay all court costs.
Ryan Howe is with the Twin Falls Police Department.
He says an extra police presence will be out on the fourth, but would like citizens to make an effort to police their neighborhoods.
"We like to get calls; we probably will not get there very quickly because we run from call to call on the fourth of July. Everybody's busy and everybody's doing something, and so it may take a little bit of time but we try to hit every area that we have those illegal fireworks," Howe explains.
He also says, even though you can buy illegal fireworks outside of Twin Falls County, you are still prohibited from lighting them off anywhere in the State of Idaho.
