Cal Fire and the City of Soledad want to remind everyone to have a fun and safe Fourth of July. To do so, here are a few tips:

  • Soledad only allows for safe and sane fireworks. All others are illegal.
  • Always read the directions.
  • Always have an adult present.
  • Use fireworks outdoors only.
  • Never use near dry grass or other flammable materials.
  • Light one at a time.
  • Keep a safe distance.
  • Never point or throw fireworks at another person.
  • Never experiment with fireworks.
  • Have a bucket of water and a hose handy.
  • If a firework doesn’t go off, do not attempt to relight or “fix” it.
  • Do not wear loose fitting clothing.
  • Never carry fireworks in your pockets.
  • Fireworks are not toys.
  • Use only State Fire Marshal.

And remember, parents are liable for any damage or injuries caused by their children using fireworks.  For more information visit www.fire.ca.gov
