City Reminds Residents That All Fireworks Are Illegal in Glendale

Glendale, CA - Fire danger and injuries from fireworks still exist even in the midst of a pandemic crisis. It is important to remember that the City of Glendale has a zero tolerance policy for all fireworks.  All personal fireworks, including “safe and sane” varieties are illegal in the city. The municipal code allows for the prosecution of fireworks-related offenses. Violators are subject to arrest, which could include serving up to six months in jail with fines up to $1,000.

Statistics show that fireworks are among the most dangerous of all consumer products. Even hand-held sparklers, which many consider safe, are dangerous and can reach 1,200 degrees Fahrenheit, causing serious burns and fires.

Help keep all of us, our children, our homes, and our properties safe from illegal fireworks. If you see something, say something! Call Glendale Police at (818) 548-4911 to report illegal fireworks and other suspicious activities.

The City of Glendale would like to wish you a happy and safe Fourth of July!
