Fireworks prohibited in Mt. Hood National Forest

Mt. Hood National Forest officials have issued a press release reminding the public that fireworks are prohibited on federal lands, such as the forest.

Violations of this law are punishable by a fine of up to $5,000 and up to six months in jail.

“At this time of the year fireworks are a big concern for federal land management officials. That seemingly harmless sparkler, as well as the bigger combustible devices like rockets and Roman Candles, can start a fire and we want all visitors to enjoy being out on their public lands without the threat of wildfire,” Deb Roy, fire management officer, was quoted in the release.
