Fireworks Reminder from the Ripon Police Department

Fireworks Reminder

As we fast approach the 4th of July celebration, please be aware of our local ordinance.

Safe and Sane Fireworks are only permitted to be used from noon on June 28th through midnight on July 4. Use of Safe and Sane fireworks outside of this time period is prohibited by City Ordinance.

As always the use of illegal fireworks is always prohibited. The City Ordinance passed in March of 2016 allows Police to cite owners, occupants and other persons at or on the property where fireworks are being discharged illegally.

Officers will be out specifically looking for the use of illegal fireworks in the days leading up to and on the night of the 4th.

You can report illegal fireworks by calling our non-emergency line at 599-2102, using our smart device application, or by calling 911 in an emergency or dangerous situation. We do not recommend reporting in-progress incidents via social media as these platforms are not always monitored.

Please use the link below to view the full ordinance.

Be safe and have a wonderful time enjoying our country's celebration.
