Palmdale Station Taking a Proactive Approach to Stopping the Use of Illegal Fireworks.

The Palmdale Sheriff’s Station PAC Team and Zone Deputies, combined with the City Of Palmdale, have conducted numerous illegal firework operations that have resulted in the confiscation of approximately 1,000-2,000 pounds of illegal fireworks. Not only have they taken a proactive approach to lowering the sales, distribution, and use of illegal fireworks prior to the 4th of July, but they will have teams out patrolling the streets of Palmdale citing citizens found to be in possession of, and using, illegal fireworks on July 4th.

These fines range between $2,500 for a first offense, $5,000 for a second offense, and $10,000 for a third offense.

Only ‘Safe and Sane’ fireworks are allowed in the Palmdale city limits except for the designated “No Fireworks Zone” where even ‘Safe and Sane’ fireworks are illegal.

The ‘No Fireworks Zone’ includes the Anaverde housing development and anywhere south of the California Aqueduct, as well as neighborhoods located on the south side of Rancho Vista Boulevard along the following lines: beginning at the intersection of Rancho Vista Boulevard and 30th Street West, areas south and west of Rancho Vista Boulevard, north to Avenue N-8; south and west of Avenue N-8 from Rancho Vista Boulevard to 55th Street West; west of 55th Street West; and south from 55th Street West to 60th Street West (Godde Hill Road).

Palmdale Station along with the City of Palmdale would like to remind you of some important safety tips for residents who use “Safe and Sane” fireworks in legal areas of the City of Palmdale:

•             Always read directions and use common sense.
•             Have an adult present.
•             Use outdoors only. Keep away from buildings, vehicles, dry                  grass and other flammable objects.
