In California, only fireworks that have been certified as Safe and Sane by the California State Fire Marshal’s Office are allowed to be utilized. Fireworks may not be purchased by anybody under the age 18. Remember that any firework that darts across the ground, flies in the air or explodes is illegal in California. If the box does not bear the seal of the California State Fire Marshal, it is unlawful. Roseville Fire inspects and authorizes fireworks stands across the city to verify compliance with state and municipal regulations.
On June 28, the permitted time of sale for these fireworks at approved booths is noon to 10:00 p.m. Then it’s allowed to sell from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. on June 29 to July 4. Safe and Sane fireworks must be discharged between noon on June 28 and 11:59 p.m. on July 4 to be legal.
Here are some safety recommendations if you opt to use Safe and Sane Fireworks:
- Always follow the guidelines.
- Only use fireworks outside.
- Only licensed fireworks stands can sell Safe and Sane Fireworks, which must have the State Fire Marshal’s stamp.
- Always have an adult in the room.
- Keep fireworks out of your pockets at all times.
To discard used fireworks, immerse them entirely in a pail of water and soak them for at least 24 hours, preferably overnight. Drain any leftover water and store your pyrotechnics in a sealable plastic bag to keep them wet once they’ve soaked. After you’ve followed these safety precautions, you can properly dispose of them in your exterior garbage can.
