The Los Angeles Fire Department reminds you that ALL FIREWORKS, even the so-called “safe and sane” variety are ILLEGAL in the City of Los Angeles. Those who use, possess or merely transport ANY type of fireworks are subject to severe penalty.
Fireworks within the City of Los Angeles are a violation of Municipal Code 57.55.01A, or Section 12677 of the Health and Safety Code.
Going to a professional fireworks show is truly the safest way to celebrate the 4th of July.
Check out www.safejuly4th.org/fw/fwshows.htm after June 26, 2017 for fireworks show information. NOTE: The Los Angeles Fire Department does not sponsor any of the shows listed on the above website.
Fireworks can be traumatic and create stress for many seniors, children and even pets.
- Violators risk serious fines, confiscation of fireworks, and jail time.
- Our fire investigators and police officers will be out in full force this year.
