Fireworks Advisory

Hi Robert Klomburg,
The Altadena Sheriff’s Station reminds all residents and visitors that
the best way to celebrate the Fourth of July holiday with family and
friends is by attending professional fireworks shows such as Americafest
at the Pasadena Rose Bowl stadium.

The sale or possession of all fireworks is illegal in Altadena.
Violators are subject to confiscation and impound of vehicles; up to one
year in jail and fines up to $50,000. Call Altadena Sheriff’s at (626)
798-1131 to report illegal fireworks.

The Los Angeles County Fire Department wants to remind everyone that
the use of fireworks not only causes fires, but results in severe
injuries and burns.

Altadena Sheriff’s Captain Christopher Reed urges everyone to make safety
a priority on July 4th.

Even sparklers, which many people consider safe, can reach 1,200
degrees Fahrenheit, causing serious burns and starting fires. Adults
normally don’t allow their children to get near anything that hot, but
for some reason they think it’s acceptable to put sparklers in the hands
of little ones on the Fourth of July.

Statistics show fireworks are among the most risky of consumer
products. Nearly 10,00 fireworks-related injuries are treated in U.S.
hospital emergency rooms every year and two of five people injured by
fireworks are under 15 years old. The most current statistics from the
National Fire Protection Association show that in 2009 more than nine out
of 10, or 92 percent, of all fireworks-related injuries treated in
hospitals were caused by fireworks that are allowed for consumer use by
federal or state regulations.

Parents are liable for any damage or injuries caused by their children
using fireworks.
