  $1,000 FINE FOR THE DISCHARGE OF ILLEGAL FIREWORKS IN AZUSA

The Fourth of July is a time to be with family, friends and for celebration of our country’s independence. As the Fourth of July draws closer the Azusa City Council, Azusa Police Department and the Los Angeles County Fire Department would like to remind residents to use caution to ensure a safe Fourth of July Holiday. If your celebration is going to include fireworks, only use the Safe and Sane variety in legally designated areas of the city.

The Azusa City Council has made a significant change to the Azusa Municipal Code regarding illegal fireworks. They are imposing a Zero Tolerance for illegal displays and have increased the fines from $500 to $1,000 for each infraction. Firecrackers, bottle rockets and mortars are all illegal. The discharge of these types of displays is strictly prohibited in Azusa.

Safe and Sane fireworks may only be discharged on July Fourth from noon to midnight and only in residential zones. It is against the law to discharge fireworks north of Sierra Madre Avenue, in City parks, parking lots, alleys or in schools. To purchase safe and sane fireworks, you must be at least eighteen years of age.

The Azusa City Council would like to remind residents that the city has a strict fireworks ordinance that restricts the use of safe and sane fireworks and imposes sever penalties for any violations. On July Fourth, the Azusa Police Department will be enforcing all applicable city and state laws and issuing citations for administrative fines beginning at $250 and up to $1,000.

Violation of State fireworks laws are a misdemeanor and punishable by fines or up to one-year incarceration in county jail

The 4th of July is a time to be with family and friends, please celebrate safely and responsibly. For more information, please call the Fourth of July Hotline at (626) 812-5010.

Have a safe and happy July Fourth!
