'Safe and Sane' Fireworks Now Legal in Henderson

'Safe and Sane' Fireworks Now Legal in Henderson


A new city ordinance in place in Henderson hopes to make for a safer Fourth of July. The Henderson City Council passed the ordinance in March. It makes the sale, possession of or use of dangerous fireworks illegal in the Henderson city limits.

Dangerous fireworks are defined as any firework that explodes or shoots up in the air. The fireworks that are labeled “safe and sane” are still legal. “Safe and sane” fireworks are the only type of firework that can legally be sold in Clark County.

Anyone caught with illegal fireworks could receive a citation or be arrested. Violating the fireworks ordinance is a misdemeanor punishable by up to six months in jail and $1,000 fine.

Before the ordinance was put into place, fireworks were not legal in Henderson. However, since the city ordinances were not specific, there were few or no consequences for breaking the no-fireworks rules.

Hundreds Left Without Power in Henderson

The cause of the outage is still unknown.

First Lady Makes Southern Nevada Campaign Stop

HENDERSON, Nev. - First Lady Michelle Obama was back in southern Nevada Tuesday afternoon for a campaign event in Henderson. Obama rallied Democratic Party volunteers, hoping Nevadans will vote for her husband as they did in 2008.

This was not a policy speech. This was a rally designed to fire up the volunteers. An estimated 1,000 people filled the Henderson Convention Center to hear the first lady's pitch for her husband President Barack Obama.

"Just last week, this administration announced new measures to lift the shadow of deportation from many of these young people who came here as children and were raised here as Americans," she said.

Some in the room were volunteers in the 2008 campaign. With Nevada still suffering from recession, the first lady told volunteers to remind voters the economy is rebounding - albeit slowly - from the 2008 crash.
