KUT the KABOOM Fireworks Abatement + Awareness rally Jun 20 Brand Park

Local elected, police and fire officials are sponsoring a rally on June 20, 2015, to remind the public that ALL fireworks are illegal in the City of Los Angeles.

"Fireworks pose a danger every year to neighborhoods in the forms of fire, injury, even death," said Capt. Todd Chamberlain, commanding officer of the Mission Police Station, which is one of the main organizers for the rally.  "Fireworks complaints also divert police and fire resources, needlessly tying up cops and firefighters and delaying responses to other serious emergencies.  And in this time of drought and high temps, wildfires are a real concern.”

The rally will be held at Brand Park in Mission Hills.  It starts at 10 AM with raffles, music and food.  Local businesses have donated gifts and prizes to encourage participation.  Police and fire equipment will also be displayed.

The event will culminate with a local canvassing of neighborhoods, reminding residents that all fireworks are illegal in the City of Los Angeles, and to encourage other forms of patriotism and entertainment on the 4th of July.

Los Angeles City Councilmember Felipe Fuentes and Congressman Tony Cardenas, who represent the area in city council and the US Congress, will be at the rally.

The attached flyer provides more details of the event.
