While some cities continue to allow the sale and use of “safe and sane” fireworks, Glendora Police reminds its residents that fireworks are banned in the city.

Officers will also patrol the city during the Fourth of July weekend, looking for anyone using fireworks. Those found in possession of fireworks will have their fireworks confiscated and be issued a citation.

Those who are caught can be issued a fine of up to $1,000 or face imprisonment in a county jail for six months, or both by imprisonment and fine.

“Fireworks are the primary cause of thousands of fires and injuries throughout the United States each 4th of July. The good news is that these fires and injuries are preventable, if people comply with local laws prohibiting the use of fireworks,” police said in a written statement.

Glendora Municipal Code 9.62.010 bans all types of fireworks in the city.
