City of arlington to Open Online Reporting Tool June 29-July 5, 2024, to Help Residents Report Illegal Fireworks Activity

This Fourth of July—let the pros light the sky.

As the holiday weekend approaches, we are reminding our residents and visitors that it is illegal to use fireworks in the City of Arlington. Every year, people across the country experience unnecessary death, injury and/or property damage because of fireworks. People who are caught using fireworks illegally in the City of Arlington may face a fine up to $2,000.

We recognize that neighborhoods across the city will still be filled with bangs, booms and bright flashes of colorful light as people celebrate with illegal fireworks in their yards or at nearby parks. Leading up to the holiday, the City of Arlington will again activate its fireworks reporting webpage,, that will allow residents to provide information about fireworks activity to Arlington’s 9-1-1 Dispatch Center while keeping phone lines open for emergencies. This reporting tool can be accessed through the red banner at the top of any City of Arlington webpage and also through the City’s free Ask Arlington app. This site allows residents to see the status of calls working in their neighborhoods as well.

Residents are asked to use this online reporting tool to report fireworks activity between:

7 p.m. June 29 and 3 a.m. June 30
 7 p.m. June 30 and 3 a.m. July 1
 7 p.m. July 1 and 3 a.m. July 2
 7 p.m. July 2 and 3 a.m. July 3
 7 p.m. July 3 and 3 a.m. July 4
 7 p.m. July 4 and 3 a.m. July 5

To report illegal fireworks outside of this timeframe, residents should call the Arlington Fire Department’s non-emergency phone line at 817-274-4444.

So please, leave the fireworks shows to the professionals. Bring your family out to enjoy the City of Arlington’s free fireworks display on Saturday, June 29 in Downtown or one of the many other local festivities planned for Independence Day.

We encourage everyone to have a safe and productive holiday weekend.
