St. Johns County Sheriff's Office Reminds Homeowners of Fireworks Ban

Homeowners,

Your HOA Board of Directors is forwarding to you a reminder letter from the St. John's County Sheriff's office about fireworks.

 

Hello Everyone,

The St. Johns County Sheriff's Office would like to wish you a safe and happy Fourth of July. We would like to remind everyone we are still under an Emergency Fireworks and Burn Ban. Division of Forestry has worked over 3600 wildfires in the state since January. 73 have been in St Johns County since June.

Under the burn ban you can not:

* Use or discharge fireworks, sparklers, trick noise makers or any other items listed in FS791.01 (4) (c).

* Use explosives or any other combustible compounds or Flares.

* Use any other outdoor burning devices or Campfires.

* Any other outdoor burning (lawn, debris, trash etc).

Exempt from the Burn Ban are campfires in a metal fire ring located in a state park or licensed campground and the use of barbeque grill, hibachi or other similar devices specifically intended for cooking.

Like all major holidays the Sheriff's Office always has a vast increase in calls and will have extra patrols on the road. We are asking for assistance with voluntary compliance but wish to remind everyone this is a criminal offense that could result in an arrest.
