LAFD Encourages You To Have a Safe Fourth and Think About Your Neighbors

Monday, June 27, 2022

"Think About Your Neighbors" and celebrate SAFELY this year.

All fireworks, even the so-called 'safe and sane' variety are illegal in the City of Los Angeles. It may be tempting to acquire personal fireworks for your 4th of July celebration, but this year we ask you to "Think About Your Neighbors." Personal fireworks are known to negatively affect children, pets, and combat veterans. In addition, the wildfire danger is ever present and vegetation moisture levels are significantly drier this year than previously recorded.

We encourage everyone to seek a public fireworks show, which will be more readily available than last year. However, those who use, possess, or transport any type of firework may be subject to criminal prosecution - or worse yet, painful and debilitating injury. Surrounding July 4th each year, LAFD responds to several hundred additional emergency incidents than the daily average. We implore you to celebrate safely and enjoy fireworks exclusively at public shows.

To locate a public fireworks show near you, check the list below or call (888) 654-FIRE (3473). This hotline will soon be updated to information relevant to 2022 celebrations.
