Every year, people across the country experience unnecessary death, injury and/or property damage from fireworks.

We recognize that neighborhoods across the city will still be filled with bangs, booms and bursts of colored light as people celebrate the start of 2022 with illegal fireworks in their yards or nearby parks. Earlier this year, the City of Arlington launched an interactive webpage, www.arlingtontx.gov/reportfireworks, for residents to provide information about fireworks activity at the 9-1- 1 from the Arlington Fire Department while keeping the phone lines open for emergencies. .

This can be accessed through the banner at the top of any City of Arlington web page and also through the city’s free Ask Arlington app.
