There are no bans on legal fireworks this year. See below for a listing of fireworks that are illegal in Washington State.
Kitsap County Code Chapter 10.48.013 allows the Board of Commissioners, after conducting a public hearing, to adopt by resolution emergency limitations or prohibitions on the sale or use of fireworks if drought or other conditions pose a threat to public health, safety and welfare. The emergency limitations are temporary and reasons necessitating them must be clearly defined.
Public hearings require 10 days advance notice and there isn’t time before the 4th of July holiday weekend to do this.
The Kitsap County Fire Marshal continues to monitor fire danger reports from the Department of Natural Resources and compares those to local conditions as well as consults regularly with county fire chiefs. According to the Washington State Department of Natural Resources, Kitsap County’s current fire danger level is moderate.
Kitsap County is currently under a Phase 1 Burn Ban, which prohibits all outdoor burning permits and all other burning except for recreational or cooking fires in approved devices and locations.

It is always best practice to discharge fireworks from your own property and assure that no part of the firework including burning embers leaves your property. Individuals and property owners may be held liable in civil courts for any damage caused to persons or property caused by firework discharge. Remember, it is always illegal to:
Soak them in a bucket of water for at least 15 minutes
Wrap them in plastic
Put them in your garbage
The water will contain heavy metals, so it is recommended that you dump the leftover water on gravel or grass – not down a sink or storm drain where it can pollute groundwater, streams, or Puget Sound.
