The Walker County Commissioners’ Court has issued a ban prohibiting the following fireworks:
A. No person may sell, detonate, ignite, or in any way use fireworks under 49 C.F. R. part 173.100(r)(2) (10-1-86 edition), as “skyrockets with sticks” and “Missiles with fins” in any portion of the unincorporated area of Walker County.
B. This Order does not prohibit:
1. common fireworks, small in size classified as Class C explosives;
2. large fireworks, devices designed primarily to produce visible or audible effects by combustion, deflagration, or detonation and classified as Class B explosives by the U.S. Dept. of Trans. (TEX. OCC. CODE, Chapter 2154).
C. A person commits an offense if the person knowingly or intentionally violates a prohibition established by this Order. An offense under this order is a Class C Misdemeanor.
However, the burn ban continues to be lifted so everyone needs to remain vigilant around any outdoor burning; never leave a fire unattended and if at possible have a water hose readily available.
