Happy 4th of July!

Pasadena Fire Department reminds residents and visitors that the best way to celebrate the Fourth of July holiday weekend with family and friends is by attending a professional fireworks show. The sale and possession of all fireworks is illegal in Pasadena as well as most of Los Angeles County. Violators are subject to confiscation and impound of vehicles, up to one year in jail and fines up to $50,000.

Statistics show that nearly 10,000 fireworks-related injuries are treated in U.S. hospital emergency rooms annually. In 2009 (latest National Fire Protection Association), more than nine out of 10 (92 percent) emergency room patients with fireworks-related injuries were injured by permitted, legal fireworks. Try to remember that fireworks are a risky consumer product.

Pasadena is very dry due to lack of rain – areas are vulnerable. Parking in the hillside areas may be restricted due to weather conditions.

Call Pasadena Police at (626) 744-4241 to report illegal fireworks.
