Have a Safe 4th of July

The American traditions of parades, cookouts, and fireworks help up celebrate the summer season, especially our Nation’s birthday on the Fourth of July. However, fireworks can turn a joyful celebration into a painful memory when children or adults are injured. Although legal consumer fireworks can be relatively safe, all fireworks are hazardous and can cause injury.

Fireworks are classified as hazardous substances under the Federal Hazardous Substances Act. Illegal explosive type devices (M-80's, quarter sticks) and professional display fireworks, should never be handled by consumers due to serious injuries and death that can occur.

Fireworks can also lead to fires that may damage land and property. This puts our Firefighters and the public’s lives at risk.

Illegal fireworks will be confiscated and violators may be cited for possession of fireworks under California Health and Safety Code.

It is against the law to use, possess, store or sell “illegal fireworks”. State law provides for a fine of at least $500 and/or a year in jail upon conviction for violating fireworks laws. Some violations are a felony! Fireworks cause many burns, injuries and fires. Violators can be held responsible for damages, as well as having to pay a fine and/or go to jail.

Parents are liable for any damage or injuries caused by their children using fireworks. Look for the “Safe and Sane” seal on all fireworks.
