Fort Bend County Restricts Certain Fireworks in Unincorporated Areas
FORT BEND COUNTY, TX-Fort Bend County Commissioners passed an “Order Prohibiting the Sale and Use of Restricted Fireworks today in court. The order prohibits certain fireworks from being sold and/or used in the unincorporated areas of Fort Bend County and was initiated from the drought conditions that are being experienced across the region.
The order specifically prohibits the sale or use of “Sky Rockets with Sticks” and “Missiles with Fins” from being sold or used. It has been determined that the restrictions are needed for these types of fireworks due to the lack of rainfall over an extended period of time and as a method for mitigating the threat of dangerous fires.
