The Prevention, Recovery, Resiliency and Mitigation Division (PRRM) would like to remind Mendocino County residents and visitors that all fireworks are illegal in Mendocino County.

As we approach the 4th of July holiday, please remember that we are currently in the third year of a severe drought emergency, and it is extremely dry in all areas of the County. The illegal use of fireworks poses a serious threat to the safety and well-being of everyone in our County.

CAL FIRE and local fire and law enforcement agencies are working together to enforce a zero-tolerance policy regarding the use and sale of illegal fireworks in Mendocino County this year. Please do your part to help protect Mendocino County from another devastating wildfire by celebrating the 4th of July safely and responsibly.

For fireworks enthusiasts, there are safe, organized, professional fireworks displays scheduled in Fort Bragg, Point Arena, and Ukiah this year!
