Why:
To Promote public awareness to the fact that all fireworks are dangerous, and illegal, within the City of Los Angeles, including Safe and Sane Fireworks.

Every year dozens of children and adults alike are injured by playing with fireworks and explosives. Fireworks are also responsible for thousands of dollars in property damage caused when sparks ignite dry brush, roofs, trees, and other fire susceptible materials.

Los Angeles City Public Service Agency’s are banding together to make sure that this 4th of July will be safe and fun for everyone.
