We would like to wish our community Happy Diwali. As a friendly reminder, all 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.

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.

The Fremont Police Department is anticipating a higher call volume tonight.  We ask that community members help due their part to keep our City safe and only dial 9-1-1 during a true or potential emergency. To report non-emergency illegal firework use, call the Fremont Police Department's Dispatch Center at 510-790-6800 x3. Please be prepared to provide dispatchers with details, such as the specific location, description of involved persons and any immediate danger to areas with dry brush and vegetation susceptible to fire. All firework calls will be prioritized with other pending calls for service.

Please be extremely careful due to the dry and warm weather. The abundance of dry grass and brush coupled with wind and high temperatures creates extremely dangerous fire conditions.

Have a Happy and Safe Diwali!
