No fireworks within the City of Katy limits

As you prepare for your 4th of July festivities, please remember fireworks are NOT allowed in city limits. This is a ticketable offence if not obeyed with a fine up to $200.00 and can result in seizure and destruction of such fireworks.
 
This does not include areas under limited purpose annexation (Willow Creek Farms) or the Greater Katy Area (Pin Oak Village, Firethorne, Cinco Ranch, Lakecrest and Williamsburg, etc. - remember to check County and HOA regulations). Not sure if your subdivision is in the city limits? Check here www.cityofkaty.com/a m-i-a-resident or email [email protected] during regular business hours to verify.
 
To set off fireworks you MUST be out of town, off public roads (including unpaved county roads and right-of-ways), and MUST have permission from property owner whom property you are on to ignite fireworks.
 
Be safe, don't let children play with fireworks or sparklers - be aware sparklers are burning metal that can burn up to 1,200 degrees!! Yes, you read that correctly… up to 1,200 degrees! Fireworks are not to be taken lightly. Remember that hot, dry weather creates fire conditions that are dangerous and have the potential to spread quickly. Be mindful of your surroundings and be responsible.
 
To report a violation, call Non-Emergency Dispatch at 281-391-4848. For a fire or medical emergency call 911. Let's have a safe 4th of July!!!

Thanks for reminding everyone. Although sometimes this does not stop people from setting them off in neighborhoods. Even if constable is called on them. It is disrespectful for those that are asleep because they need to get up early and be at work at 5 in the morning. Or for those with sleeping babies.

@sugu : That's a dangerous thing to do because they don't know where it will come back down... at least if he was shooting up into the air.

Yes, at least it was shooting up in the air. But either way it has to come down somewhere. Aughhh!!!!

@sugu : Yes a very bad decision. There are actually cases of people who ended up hitting themselves by shooting up in the air. I hope he got your message! Thank you for respecting our ears :D.

I guess we should be grateful for that predicted rain this coming weekend. It may stop many form doing fireworks.

@Fiona : Back in the days when so many houses had cedar shake roof construction in our area, a lot of us prayed for rain on the 4th of July to protect our roof. A ten year old dry cedar roof and bottle rockets are a bad combination. Fires were fairly rare but not unheard of.

I remember. And I also remember on the hot summer before 4th of July that my parents would have us water the lawn or the roof just in case of a firework landing in the yard or roof.

Definitely use to water down our wood shingle roof & lawn before the 4th, and for New Years Eve. Now only have to water the lawn. People use to never set off fireworks except for on the 4th or on New Year's Eve. Now people begin setting off fireworks as soon as the Fireworks Stands open. If we had wood shingles, we would be watering down our roofs on a daily basis for weeks before & after the actual celebration date.

Fireworks and gunshots almost sound alike.
