The Los Angeles Fire Department wants you to remember that fireworks are illegal in the city of Los Angeles, and in all other cities serviced by the LAFD. Every year, thousands of people are treated in emergency rooms for injuries caused by illegal fireworks. You may also have noticed that, in addition to the dry brush which already surrounds many of our neighborhoods, many people have stopped watering their lawns, leaving their houses surrounded by dry fuel. It takes only one spark to set off a serious fire. Please enjoy professional fireworks shows. Don't risk your life and your property.
