Fireworks Allowed In Kenai For New Year’s Eve

first_imgFireworks are not allowed on public spaces like the beach, ballparks, etc. Fireworks are forbidden in the Kenai Peninsula Borough, except for planned, professional, permitted displays. Kenai Fire Chief Jeff Tucker is asking revelers to be careful and considerate: “General safety is the biggest concern. With the snow on the ground we’re not concerned about wildland fires, but anytime you use fireworks safety precautions need to be taken seriously. Have an extinguisher nearby, and don’t let children use them without parent supervision. If people take the right precautions fireworks can be used safely, and we just encourage people to do that.”  For more information contact the Kenai Fire Department at (907) 283-7666. Fireworks are to be used only for personal and private use on real property owned by the person, or other private property with the consent of the property owner. On the days of December 31st and January 1st only, a 48-hour period, a person over the age of eighteen may use salable fireworks within the City of Kenai.
