New Year's Fire Safety

Celebrate safely and remember fireworks are illegal in the city

The City of Killeen hopes that the entire community has an amazing New Year celebration. In order to be considerate of the community, your neighbors, pets and veterans we would like to remind the community that fireworks of any kind are not permitted in the City of Killeen. 


Fireworks are not permitted within Killeen city limits. It is unlawful for any person to possess, store, offer for sale, sell at retail, use, or explode any fireworks within the city limits. Any fireworks found are subject to seizure by the Fire or Police Department.

“Sparklers” and other types that do not leave the ground are considered fireworks and are deemed illegal.

Please allow police and fire to focus on priority life threatening calls for service. Call the Police non-emergency number at 254-501-8800 to report fireworks.

Tips on how to celebrate the New Year without fireworks:

  • Watch fireworks displays on TV as the world brings in the new year
  • Make a time capsule by gathering items to commemorate this whirlwind of a year
  • Have a board game marathon
  • Go to a New Year’s celebration

 Most importantly, BE SAFE!
