Fireworks Are Banned in Fremont

Fremont’s public safety departments would like to remind Fremont residents, businesses and visitors that the sale, possession, and use of all fireworks are banned within the City of Fremont. This ban includes the “safe and sane” variety of fireworks that are legal in some other cities. The ban, in effect since December 1986, has helped reduce the number of injuries, wildland fires, and structure fires caused by fireworks in the city of Fremont.?

Fire and Police resources will be on patrol in Fremont during the peak times of concern to maintain an active vigilance against fireworks use.  

In California, possession of illegal fireworks is considered a misdemeanor, which is punishable by a fine of not less than $500 or more than $1,000, or by imprisonment in a county jail for up to one year. If you are found to be in possession of a sufficient amount of illegal fireworks, you may be guilty of a felony and punished by a fine up to $5,000 and/or imprisonment in a state prison or county jail. Parents may be held liable for any damages or injuries caused by their children’s use of illegal fireworks.

To report illegal fireworks use call the Fremont Police Department Dispatch Center at 510-790-6800 x3.

Please be extremely careful during the Fourth of July holiday season and throughout the summer months with all outdoor activities. The abundance of dry grass and brush in the area has created an extremely dangerous fire condition.

Have a happy and safe 4th of July.
