Illegal fireworks and bonfires along Grizzly Peak Boulevard

Over the past few days, there have been concerns about persons igniting fireworks and bonfires along the turnouts of Grizzly Peak Boulevard between Centennial Drive and Claremont Avenue—increasing the danger of fire to our community.  To prevent, deter and stop these reckless behaviors, the University of California Police Department (UCPD) have increased their uniformed patrols of the Grizzly Peak corridor.
Because this area along Grizzly Peak Boulevard resides within the jurisdictions of several law enforcement agencies (Oakland PD, UC Berkeley PD and East Bay Regional Parks PD), you will likely see an increased law enforcement presence in the area.
Please report anyone igniting fireworks or setting fires immediately.  If you call the wrong dispatch center, they will transfer you to the correct jurisdiction. The numbers to call are the following:

If you have an emergency, dial 911.
