ML asks residents to be safe on July 4


The Medical Lake Fire Department is asking citizens to be safe this Fourth of July.

Medical Lake is currently one of the only cities in Spokane County that allows people to set off fireworks on private property within city limits.

Fireworks that are legal to use on July 4 in Washington state include cylindrical and cone fountains, sparklers, smoke devices, Roman candles, parachutes, wheel, ground spinners, reloadable mortars, novelties and dipped sticks.

Illegal fireworks consist of sky rockets and missiles, chasers, fire crackers, bottle rockets and improvised explosive devices.

Residents who plan to light fireworks should have water nearby to extinguish them after they are discharged, and dispose of the debris. Folks should also be mindful of their neighbors and pets who may not enjoy fireworks.

Medical Lake will operate under a revised ordinance giving Fire Chief Jason Mayfield the authority to suspend the sale and use of fireworks in Medical Lake, should weather conditions create a fire danger.

For more information, contact the Medical Lake Fire Department at (509) 565-5022 or email
