Fireworks Safety

 Fireworks at Starlight Bowl

As the 4th of July nears, the Burbank Fire Department reminds the community that all fireworks, including those branded “Safe and Sane,” are illegal in Burbank. Even sparklers, which most people consider safe, can reach temperatures of 1,200 degrees Fahrenheit, seriously burn people and cause fires.

With the fire season upon us, it is vital that the community understands that fireworks can cause brush fires, house fires, millions of dollars in damages, injuries and death.

The Burbank Fire and Police Departments will be actively enforcing laws regarding the possession of all types of fireworks, including sparklers. To report illegal fireworks, please call the Burbank Police Department at (818) 238-3000.
