Reminder From CAL FIRE Amid Fireworks Sales

Reminder From CAL FIRE Amid Fireworks Sales

With the Independence Day holiday rapidly approaching, CAL FIRE is reminding all Californians to do their part to prevent fires caused by illegal fireworks or the misuse of “safe & sane” fireworks. Fireworks will go on sale in approximately 300 communities throughout California, including Amador and Calaveras Counties, this Sunday. Although fireworks are a symbolic display of patriotism during this time of celebration, they can be dangerous when handled incorrectly or used in the wrong environment. In California, there is zero tolerance for the use and sale of illegal fireworks. Any person who causes a fire can be held liable for the costs of it suppression and associated property damage. Often these costs are in the hundreds of thousands to sometimes millions of dollars. The State Fire Marshall approved “Safe and Sane” fireworks are allowed for use in many communities; however, they are not approved state-wide. Even “safe and sane” fireworks taken into a city or county where they are banned are considered illegal. Before purchasing fireworks, be sure to check your local ordinances and follow the instructions to avoid accidents and injuries.
