“Safe and Sane” fireworks will go on sale in Dublin beginning June 28 at 12:00 PM, and the City of Dublin’s public safety divisions will be providing extra enforcement to ensure that fireworks are used safely, and that illegal firework use is minimized. Safety is especially important this year due to the extremely dry conditions caused by the drought.

Illegal fireworks, which explode in the air or move along the ground, pose an even higher threat this year due to the extremely dry conditions of the Dublin hillsides, where there is great potential for wildfires. Law enforcement and fire officials plan to be extra vigilant this season. Penalties for those caught selling or using illegal fireworks can range from misdemeanor to felony charges, and can include fines and jail time.

Residents concerned about potential illegal fireworks or unsafe firework use, can call (925) 462-1212 to anonymously report these activities. If you are calling to report a fire, please call 9-1-1.
