The city of Santa Clarita, in partnership with the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station and the Los Angeles County Fire Department, are reminding residents that all fireworks, including those labeled “safe and sane,” are illegal within city limits.

The agencies have launched a joint fireworks safety campaign to inform residents that illegal fireworks are dangerous and are not tolerated in the city.

The Sheriff’s Station will also be conducting multiple fireworks operations between now and the Fourth of July.

In the city of Santa Clarita, it is illegal to possess, sell or use fireworks within city limits.

Fireworks include those labeled “safe and sane,” such as sparklers, snaps and smoke balls, and any item that explodes, rises in the air or moves about the ground.

Fireworks are a violation of the Santa Clarita Municipal Code, Health and Safety Code and Los Angeles County Fire Code. Those found guilty of a violation will be cited and have their illegal fireworks confiscated by the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station.

“Violators can receive a fine from $500 to $1,000 and face misdemeanor prosecution,” SCV Sheriff’s Station Captain Robert Lewis said.

The public is encouraged to report illegal fireworks anonymously by calling the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station at 661-255-1121.

Please do not dial 9-1-1 to report illegal fireworks, unless it is a life-threatening emergency.

Residents may also report illegal fireworks to the sheriff’s deputy assigned to their zone. Information on zones can be found online at scvsheriff.com/zone-leaders.

“Fireworks are known to cause burns, serious injuries and even death,” Assistant Fire Chief Anderson Mackey said. “Besides causing physical harm to our citizens, fireworks greatly increase the risk of both structure and wildland fires.”

“We want folks to enjoy the Fourth of July, but responsibly,” said Santa Clarita Mayor Laurene Weste. “In addition to possibly starting a fire, fireworks create anxiety and stress among pets and veterans who may have post-traumatic stress disorder.”

“I would recommend our residents leave the show to the pros and instead attend the city’s free and magnificent Fourth of July fireworks show,” Weste said.

The city’s Annual Fourth of July show will take place at the Westfield Valencia Town Center at 9:15 p.m. on July 4.

Protect Your Pets from Fireworks Trauma
As part of the campaign, the agencies have partnered with the County of Los Angeles – Castaic Animal Shelter and the Lange Foundation’s St. Bonnie’s Sanctuary on a social media campaign, featuring local L.A. County Firefighters with dogs that are adoptable in the area.

The campaign is intended to educate the public that besides being extremely dangerous, fireworks are the leading cause of runaway pets; more pets get lost on the Fourth of July than any other time of the year.

In addition to social media, the Fireworks Safety campaign includes digital and print messaging at local city facilities and schools.

A fireworks safety press conference will be held to remind residents that fireworks of any kind are illegal in the city of Santa Clarita, in Los Angeles County unincorporated communities and in many of its 88 cities.

The press conference is open to the public and will take place on Friday, June 29 at 10 a.m. at Los Angeles County Fire Station 126, located at 26320 Citrus Street, Valencia 91355.
