Are fireworks allowed in Santa Fe?

Members of the Santa Fe Fire Department want to remind everyone that only certain kinds of fireworks can be used within the City limits. 

Safe and sane fireworks are all fireworks that have no report. In other words, they do not make a ‘bang,’ are not self-propelling, and their display does not extend above fifteen feet in height from the ground.  

Fireworks approved for use within the City limits are sold with an approved permit and from a store with a permanent structure at a recognized business location.  The City Ordinance does not permit the sale of fireworks from a fireworks tent or stand. 


How do I select and install a smoke alarm?

The City of Santa Fe recommends always following the manufacturers' guidelines for all smoke alarm installation. 


Can I meet with the Fire Marshal’s Office to discuss possible changes to a building's use or occupancy?

Any changes to a building's use or occupancy need to be permitted by the Land Use Department. These changes need to follow International Fire Code (IFC) 2015. Any plans will need to be prepared by a registered design professional per Section 104.7.2 of the IFC 2015 in order to be submitted to the Fire Marshal’s Office. At this point, the Fire Marshal’s Office will review the plans to ensure it meets IFC 2015.
