Fireworks safety tips
■ It is illegal for anyone younger than the 16 to purchase fireworks.
■ The fireworks permissible in Routt County include sparklers, fountains and ground spinners.
■ Fireworks that do not explode or leave the ground are legal in Colorado, but remember, even legal fireworks burn at high temperatures and can ignite clothing easily; always keep children away from fireworks.
■ Firecrackers, rockets (including bottle rockets), Roman candles and mortars are not legal anywhere in Colorado.
■ Never relight fireworks that have gone out; they still could be live and go off unexpectedly.
■ Establish a safe viewing area away from houses and shrubbery; never light fireworks inside.
■ Fireworks of any kind are illegal on U.S. Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management lands.
■ For more information or assistance in preparing for a safe Fourth of July celebration, call Steamboat Springs Fire Rescue Mountain offices at 879-0700 or 879-7170.
