Fire Safety and Utah’s July Holidays

The university and surrounding Salt Lake City neighborhoods are prohibited from using any kind of fireworks during the July holidays (see the map here). Hot and dry conditions warrant extreme care along the university’s east bench especially. Fireworks and open fires of any kind are not allowed. If grilling, grill only in university designated sites. A working fire extinguisher must be present and grills should never be unattended.

More information on fireworks restrictions is available here. General fireworks safety tips can be found here.

If you have specific questions related to fire safety on campus, please contact the University Fire Marshal 801-581-6590.
