Safety Zones; Fireworks Displays in the Sector Columbia River Captain of the Port Zone
Document Number: 2014-14239
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-06-18
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard proposes to add twenty four new fireworks events at various locations in the Sector Columbia River Captain of the Port zone.

These additional safety zones and corrections to existing safety zones are necessary to prevent injury and to protect life and property of the maritime public from hazards associated with fireworks displays.
