Reminder: Fourth of July fireworks are prohibited in Menlo Park

The Police Department reminds local residents and visitors that all forms of fireworks and gunfire are strictly prohibited in Menlo Park. This includes “safe & sane” fireworks as the potential for fires is extremely high due to hotter temperatures and dryness of grass and brush. It only takes one spark to start a fire, which can cause tremendous damage. Police will respond quickly to reports of unlawful use and/or possession of fireworks and firearms. Anyone found using or in possession of fireworks or discharging a firearm are subject to citations and/or arrest. Residents can report the use of fireworks and firearms by calling the police non-emergency number at 650-330-6300. In the event of an emergency, dial 9-1-1.

The public is urged to avoid the use of consumer fireworks and instead enjoy firework displays conducted by trained professionals. Information on where firework displays and festivities are located can be found online:

•ABC Bay Area -
•CBS SF Bay Area -
•NBC Bay Area -

The Fourth of July is a time for celebration, so make it an enjoyable and safe holiday!
