Fireworks Industry Voluntarily Limits the Sale of Two Types of Fireworks Products in Williamson County

Due to the drought conditions and current Burn Ban in effect in Williamson County, County Judge Bill Gravell and the fireworks industry have worked together to limit the sale of two types of fireworks products this July Fourth holiday. Stick rockets and missiles with fins or rudders will not be sold.

“Williamson County is urging everyone to use extreme caution this Independence Day so that everyone has a safe holiday. To that end, we have worked in collaboration with the Texas Pyrotechnics Association and American Fireworks, Williamson County’s largest retailer, to enhance fire safety through this decision to voluntarily not sell stick rockets and missiles with fins or rudders. These products pose the greatest risk of fire danger,” said County Judge Bill Gravell.

“For the 50 plus years I have been in the fireworks business, Williamson County has been very good to me.   It is important for us to do the right thing now.” said Chester Davis, president of the Texas Pyrotechnics Association and owner of American Fireworks. “We urge everyone in Williamson County to celebrate Independence Day safely and responsibly.”

Most jurisdictions have city ordinances prohibiting the use of fireworks within or near the city limits. An interactive county map with the fireworks free buffer zone area is available at this link https://gis.wilco.org/maps/?viewer=countymap. Fireworks sales begin on Friday, June 24.
