Fireworks Causing Fire Damage in Kaiser?
Know the Law
According to CAL FIRE, although many places in California outlaw fireworks due to the threat of property damage and wildfires, there are Safe and Sane zones in some cities where fireworks are allowed. SERVPRO® of Northeast Ontario/Kaiser encourages the residents of the Ontario and Kaiser communities to check your local laws to find out if fireworks are legal where you live, and if there are designated Safe and Sane fireworks areas. California also has zero-tolerance for the sale and use of illegal fireworks including:
- Sky rockets
- Bottle rockets
- Roman candles
- Aerial shells
- Other fireworks that explode, go into the air, or move on the ground in an uncontrollable manner
