This Independence Day remember to celebrate safe and responsibly, and leave the fireworks to the professionals!


The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department would like to remind Los Angeles County residents that most fireworks, even the so-called “safe and sane” fireworks, are illegal in unincorporated Los Angeles County. If caught in possession of, or handling illegal fireworks, one can be facing criminal prosecution and significant fines. It could end up even worse, with painful and debilitating injuries.

In order to avoid hefty fines, jail time, or injury, the best option is to leave the fireworks to the professionals! To enjoy a professional fireworks show and avoid the dangers, you can find a list of free public fireworks shows throughout Los Angeles County at https://www.fire.lacounty.gov/…/2018-Public-Fireworks-Displ….

For more information about illegal fireworks, please visit the Los Angeles County Fire Department website at https://www.fire.lacounty.gov/safety-mess…/fireworks-safety/.
