All Fireworks Prohibited in La Palma

No Fireworks
The City of La Palma and the Orange County Fire Authority (OCFA) want to remind everyone that the sale, discharge, or possession of fireworks is illegal in most areas of Orange County, including La Palma. Only some Orange County cities allow “safe and sane” fireworks with very specific restrictions on their sale and discharge. Those cities include: Anahiem, Buena Park, Costa Mesa, Fullerton, Garden Grove, Huntington Beach, Santa Ana, Stanton, Villa Park, and Westminster. It is important to know that you cannot buy fireworks in those cities and then use them in another city.

Firecrackers, bottle rockets, cherry bombs, and other devices that explode, move along the ground, or travel through the air are banned throughout the State of California. There is no safe or legal area to possess, sell, or discharge these types of dangerous fireworks anywhere in the state.

The OCFA recommends that residents enjoy an Independence Day celebration with friends and family at a professional fireworks show. To enhance your Fourth of July experience, please participate in the City’s annual Fitness Run for Fun, Family Fun Zone, and Kiwanis Pancake Breakfast; occurring during the morning of July 4th, starting at 7:30 a.m.

Each year in the United States, more than 10,000 people suffer eye injuries and burns from fireworks, and fireworks cause approximately 3,000 fires. These statistics include both the use of illegal fireworks as well “safe and sane” fireworks. It is estimated, that 45% of persons injured from fireworks are children 14 years and younger and children ages 5 to 9 have the highest injury rate. Sparklers are responsible for most injuries involving children under the age of five, because they can reach temperatures of more than 1,000 degrees. Please enjoy Independence Day safely!
