Local State of Emergency Declared in Bend Bans Use of ALL Fireworks

The City of Bend has declared a local state of emergency in response to the ongoing excessively high temperatures and the enhanced risk of wildfire.  The declaration will remain in effect through July 9th, and allows for temporary emergency policies to respond to the crisis and preserve limited public safety and water resources.  The emergency declaration mobilizes city resources to provide support services to community members without housing and an immediate ban on the use of ALL fireworks  within the city limits – legal or illegal.  The professional fireworks displays at Vince Genna Stadium on July 3rd and Pilot Butte State Park on July 4th WILL continue as scheduled.
