Fireworks prohibited at national park


Fireworks are always prohibited in national parks, including New Year’s Eve, according to federal law.

Visitors will notice ‘Fireworks Prohibited’ signs posted near the entrance to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, and are reminded that fireworks are not permitted in any national park.

“Our priorities as caretakers for these public lands are to keep the public and our natural, cultural, and historical resources safe,” James Courtright, Fire Management Officer for Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park and the Pacific Island Park Network, said in a written statement. “We wish everyone a safe and healthy 2014.”
