City of Lawton Fireworks Ordinances


The use of fireworks within city limits is illegal except in designated areas. Here’s a list of city property sites where residents can legally discharge fireworks July 4, from noon to 11 p.m.:

LAKE LAWTONKA – Robinson’s Landing, in ball field area; north trecreation area (day use area, near School House Slough); from Lawton Boat Club north through Group Use 1 area;

LAKE ELLSWORTH – Fisherman’s Cove from lead to lake; Ralph’s Resort, railroad tracks to dam; Chandler Creek camping area; Collier Landing camping area;

No fireworks of any kind will be discharged if a county and/or state burn ban has been issued.


Stay safe while getting a bang out of July 4



Area stands are open, and last year’s burn ban that prohibited the discharge of fireworks in Comanche County isn’t in effect, but Lawton fire officials are hoping citizens still take plenty of caution this Fourth of July.

The department suggests residents avoid handling consumer fireworks on their own by instead opting to attend public displays, Lawton Fire Marshal Mark Mitchell said. But if they do shoot their own firecrackers — which Mitchell knows inevitably will happen — they need to take the proper steps to avoid injury, he said.

“I understand people are going to use consumer fireworks,” Mitchell said. “Knowing that, we recommend their first concern should be protecting their eyes and hearing and burn protection.”
