Encinitas Fire Department offers July fire safety tips
The safest way to enjoy fireworks is to attend a professional public display. Fireworks, including safe and sane, are dangerous and illegal.
In the City of Encinitas, use or possession of fireworks is a misdemeanor and subject to a fine and/or imprisonment. Sky lanterns also present serious fire and safety hazards. Sky lanterns are airborne paper lanterns with a fuel source that are known to travel significant distances and start fires far from where they were launched.
All fireworks, including sparklers and poppers, are illegal and dangerous. Enjoy a public professional display of fireworks and have a safe 4th of July.
