Ocean Shores Fire Department Wants You To Be Safe And Know The Rules For the 4th of July Celebrations.



The Ocean Shores Fire Department and the Ocean Shores Police Department would like you and your family to have a fun and safe 4th of July in Ocean Shores. Below is a list of fireworks rules, laws, safety ideas, and tide tables which you should follow in order to enjoy your holiday.

Fireworks may only be discharged during the following dates, and hours:

  • July 2nd and 3rd between the hours of twelve p.m. and eleven p.m.
  • July 4th between the hours of twelve p.m. and twelve midnight.

Fireworks may only be discharged on the beach from the Damon Beach Approach (Best Western) to Marine View Drive Beach Access. Fireworks cannot be discharged in the City.


Fireworks cannot be used within 100 feet of the dune grass or fired into the dunes.

Fireworks cannot be discharged from decks or balconies of hotels, motels, or any residential properties.

Only legal fireworks may be discharged. Firecrackers and bottle-rocket type fireworks are not permitted.

Absolutely no beach fires within 100’ of the dunes or in large pieces of driftwood.

Please completely extinguish your campfire with water.

Dispose of garbage and used fireworks properly in garbage containers. Do not leave trash on the beach. Bags will be available at the beach approaches.

The beach is a state highway and all licensing, registration and rules of the road apply the same as they do on city streets: Maximum speed limit is 25mph, but possibly slower if beaches are crowded.

Do not drink and drive.

 Violation of fireworks, motor vehicle, or other laws can lead to citations ranging from $150 to over $1000.
