Celebrate the Fourth of July Safely with State-Approved Fireworks

Celebrate safely and responsibly on the 4th of July!

The City of West Sacramento has an adopted ordinance regulating the possession, sale and use of fireworks within city limits. State of California-approved Safe and Sane Fireworks are permitted to be sold and used within the city as outlined in the West Sacramento Fireworks Ordinance. Safe and Sane Fireworks can be used within West Sacramento during the period of 12 noon on June 28, 2014 thru noon on July 6, 2014.

Please see the following for more safety advice:

  • Supervise your children’s use of state-approved fireworks (look for the State Fire Marshal seal on the fireworks or the box containing the fireworks; if in doubt, check with your local fire or police department);
  • You may be liable for any damages or injuries caused by your family’s use of fireworks;
  • Use fireworks outdoors only;
  • Light one firework at a time;
  • Use common sense and keep a safe distance;
  • Never point or throw fireworks at others;
  • Never experiment with fireworks;
  • Have a bucket of water and a hose ready;
  • Never attempt to re-light or “fix” fireworks that fail to ignite;
  • Never carry fireworks in your pockets;
  • Possession of “Dangerous Fireworks” (those not approved as Safe and Sane by the state Fire Marshal’s office) are a violation of the California Penal Code and Health and Safety Code, subject to felony violations;
  • Community members wishing to turn in fireworks for disposal may contact the West Sacramento Police Department’s non-emergency phone, (916) 372-3375 or bring them to a West Sacramento Fire Station;
