As the July 4 holiday approaches, the Santa Monica Fire Department would like to remind everyone
that ALL types of fireworks are illegal in the City of Santa Monica. This includes so-called “safe and sane”

The public is urged to avoid the use of consumer fireworks and instead, to enjoy displays of fireworks conducted
by trained professionals.
