Kerr County Judge to enact order prohibiting fireworks sales and use

Kerr County Judge Rob Kelly has confirmed he will be implementing a temporary disaster order prohibiting the sale and use of fireworks anywhere in Kerr County beginning at 1 p.m. Saturday, July 2, set to automatically expire at 1 a.m. Tuesday, July 5. 

The only exception to the order will be the City of Kerrville’s professionally supervised fireworks display planned for Monday evening at Louise Hays Park.

The order states, in part:  “I, Rob Kelly, county judge of Kerr County, Texas, do hereby declare a local state of disaster based on the threat of large wildfires in Kerr County, Texas.” 

The order bans the sale or use of fireworks throughout the county, with enforcement to come from the Kerr County Sheriff’s Office.

Kelly added, “I know that many of our citizens enjoy fireworks as part of their Independence Day celebrations each year, but our current hot and dry conditions mean it is just too risky this year. 

It may be disappointing, but the decision was made to protect lives and property by mitigating the threat of dangerous fires
