Southern Marin Fire District urged all residents and visitors to remember that fireworks are illegal in Marin county, not just on the upcoming Fourth of July weekend.
The fireworks ordinance will be enforced to reduce fire risk, protect natural resources and – most importantly – to preserve personal safety.
As stated in last year's Press Release, "a misdemeanor offense of using or possessing fireworks in Marin could cost an offender $410 – that’s $100 for the base fine plus $310 in penalty assessments and surcharges."
The safest way to enjoy fireworks is at professional fireworks show. Local shows can be found at the Marin County Fairgrounds, June 30-July 4 and in Sausalito July 4. Do not risk your safety and the safety of others by using illegal and dangerous fireworks at home. Have a Fire Safe Fourth of July—One Less Spark means One Less Wildfire!
