ANY AND ALL FIREWORKS ARE ILLEGAL HERE IN OUR MORONGO BASIN

While you are planning your family get together for the Independence Day celebration, remember all fireworks, including the so-called safe and sane type, are strictly prohibited in this county. Reporter Diana Jones reminds you the cost of illegal fireworks can be high…

Many people have fond memories of celebrating the Fourth of July by twirling sparklers, watching firework fountains, and snakes. But the San Bernardino County Fire Department reminds residents that possession of any type of fireworks, including “safe and sane” fireworks like sparklers, snakes, and fountains, is against the law in unincorporated areas of the county. Firefighters in the City of Twentynine Palms and the Town of Yucca Valley also remind residents that all fireworks are illegal in their municipalities. Anyone caught with fireworks can be fined and jailed. In the event a fire occurs due to the use of fireworks, those responsible not only face fines of up to $1250 for a first offense, but can also be charged with the costs of fighting the fire. Property owners who allow fireworks on their property can also face criminal charges.
