Safe and Sane Fireworks Safety

What are Safe and Sane Fireworks?

  • Safe and Sane fireworks are identified by the State of California or State Fire Marshall with a logo on the firework itself or on the packaging.
  • Safe and Sane fireworks are sold at City of Fontana approved locations only. Beware of individuals selling fireworks from their homes or cars that say Safe and Sane
  • Safe and Sane means that the fireworks are less likely yo cause injury and generally means that the fireworks do not explode or fly.
  • Safe and Sane fireworks are still dangerous, especially around children.
Know your fireworks; read the warning labels and performance descriptions before igniting and designate a shooter to organize and shoot your family show.
  • Fireworks should only be used by adults.
  • Sparklers can reach 1800 degrees, hot enough to melt gold.
  • Unincorporated areas of the County do not allow any fireworks, so check if your neighborhood is within the City limits.
