Silver Firs Area Fireworks Map - Snohomish County Fireworks Discharge Map

Wondering if you can shoot off fireworks this Fourth of July 2021? The answer is maybe...

Snohomish County has published it's fireworks discharge map and rules here. If you live in the Silver Firs area, you may be able to light off fireworks on the 4th of July from 9am to midnight. I have posted the section of the map that relates to Silver Firs here. Fireworks are banned in the red areas including all of Mill Creek and County Parks. You can see that the only place in Silver Firs that fireworks are not allowed is Willis Tucker Park. Otherwise, Silver Firs, Gold Creek, and The Falls residents can discharge fireworks on the 4th of July 2021.
