Be safe, this 4th of July, leave the fireworks to the pros!

Don't fool yourself, playing with fireworks can ruin a good time! 

Every year across the country, people young and old suffer serious burns and eye injuries from illegal fireworks. 230 people on average go the emergency room every day with fireworks-related injuries in the month around the July 4th holiday. Even those seemingly innocent "sparklers" that many let small children play with can cause injuries. Did you know that sparklers burn at temperatures of about 2000 degrees? That is hot enough to melt some metals!

We encourage everyone to, "leave it to the pros" and celebrate smart this Fourth of July. To ensure everyone’s safety and an enjoyable celebration for all, we urge everyone to go to a public fireworks display produced by professionals. 

Professional public firework displays in our area will be at the following locations on July 4th: 

-Suisun City Waterfront
-Vacaville Creekwalk
-Benicia Picnic in the Park
-Rio Vista

There will be increased Police and Fire Department staffing in the days surrounding July 4th. We will have a dedicated team of proactive officers responding to related calls concerning, but not limited to fireworks, parties, and disturbances. People found making, buying, selling, or using fireworks may be cited.

To report the use of illegal fireworks or other neighborhood disturbances, please contact the Fairfield Police Department at (707) 428-7300, or call 9-1-1 in the event of an emergency or active crime.
