From Lubbock County Sheriff's Office:
The Sheriff's Office would like to stress that residents will still be able to shoot fireworks during the upcoming holiday in the unincorporated county area, provided they use caution.
The county's current partial fireworks ban doesn't exclude the use of all fireworks, rather only rockets with sticks and missiles with fins. A total ban on fireworks in unincorporated county areas has not been established.
City of Lubbock and other municipalities in Lubbock County do presently prohibit fireworks use or sale in their city limits. Lubbock County residents can still possess and shoot fireworks in areas outside restricted local cities.
Fireworks are one of the major sources for fire hazards at this time of year and the best way to eliminate those hazards is not to use fireworks at all. However, if citizens choose to exercise their right to celebrate the holiday with fireworks, we urge observance of the following fireworks safety rules:
Use of fireworks after midnight may be considered as disturbance of the peace, based on the factor of loud and unreasonable noise standards.
