Safe and Safe Fireworks Safety Tips

Public Display Shows

All fireworks public display shows are regulated under a permit issued by the Fire Chief. All regulations, as outlined in Title 19, are strictly enforced. Public fireworks display shows are inspected by qualified fire inspectors to ensure public safety.

Illegal Fireworks Enforcement

The Roseville Fire Department is a partner in the Sacramento Regional Fireworks Task Force. The Fire Department enforces a "zero tolerance" policy as it relates to sales, possession and use of illegal fireworks.

Remember, any firework that flies in the air, darts across the ground or explodes is considered illegal in California. If it doesn't have the California State Fire Marshal seal on the packaging, it's illegal. The Fire Department utilizes fire investigators to aggressively enforce fireworks laws.
