No fireworks on school grounds - 06/30/15
Due to increased fire risk and the presence of construction material and equipment at some schools, fireworks will not be permitted on Vancouver Public Schools' grounds and parking lots this summer. The public will not be allowed to access any school property to discharge or use fireworks. Increased security patrols will monitor activity.
Hudson's Bay High School's parking lot will be open on July 4 for those attending the celebration activities at the Fort Vancouver National Historic Site. However, setting off fireworks in the lot will be prohibited.
"Based on concerns about the unusually hot and dry conditions, we are taking added precautions to help ensure safety at all of our school sites," said Todd Horenstein, assistant superintendent for facility support services.
"We support the school district's effort to take added precautions that will help ensure safety at school sites," added Jon Dunaway, Clark County fire marshal.
