ANAHEIM, Calif. (June 30, 2017) — As holidays go, Fourth of the July ranks right up there. Who doesn’t love a summer day of fireworks, food, family and fun?
We wish everyone in Anaheim an awesome Fourth. But we also want to make sure everyone stays safe.
Remember, only “Safe and Sane” fireworks are allowed in Anaheim. Real fireworks are illegal.
What’s the difference? Safe and Sane fireworks are lots of fun, but they’re small and tame. They won’t explode or fly into the air.
We work hard to create a strong safety plan each year, bringing together different city departments.
Anaheim Police, Anaheim Fire & Rescue and Code Enforcement will have extra patrols out around the holiday making sure residents aren’t putting their neighbors in danger by setting off illegal fireworks, or misusing Safe and Sane ones.
And save the fireworks for the Fourth! Safe and Sane fireworks can only be used on July 4 from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Fireworks are not allowed in parks, industrial areas, commercial areas, retail parking lots or public streets and highways.
And remember: All fireworks, even Safe and Sane ones, are prohibited in east Anaheim, east of the Costa Mesa (55) Freeway and south of the Riverside (91) Freeway due to wildland fire concerns.
