Reminder - All Fireworks are Banned in Fremont

The Fremont Police Department would like to remind our community that all fireworks are banned in Fremont.

Over the last couple of days, we have received a few complaints of fireworks. We want to remind Fremont residents and businesses that the sale, possession, and use of ALL fireworks are banned within the City of Fremont.

The ban includes "safe and sane" variety of fireworks (e.g. sparklers, fountains, flowers, etc.) that are legal in some other cities. The ban, in effect since December 1986, has helped reduce the number of injuries, wild-land 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 nor more than $1000 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 $5000 and/or imprisonment in a state prison or county jail. Parents may be held liable for any damages or injuries caused by their child's use of illegal fireworks.

Thank you for your cooperation.
