The Fillmore Police Department encourages residents celebrate responsibly the Fourth of July weekend with consideration for the safety of all members of the public and their respective property. With the anticipated increase of the city’s population during the festivities, in addition to the inherent dangers associated with illegal fireworks, the Fillmore Police Department will have extra patrol deputies deployed throughout the city of the Fillmore over the holiday weekend.

The Fillmore Police Department wants to remind residents of the following information pertaining to illegal fireworks and the fines associated with these crimes:

“Safe and Sane” fireworks, bearing the seal of the State Fire Marshal, can be legally sold, possessed, and enjoyed in the city of Fillmore between 12:00 PM, June 28th, and 12:00 PM, July 5th.

Violators may be cited for violating city municipal codes and are subject to a $1,000.00 fine, for possessing illegal fireworks or may be arrested for more serious offenses.
