Joint Message from Police Chief Navarro and Fire Chief Westrope Ahead of July 4th Celebrations

News Flash_2021JointChiefMessage

In the face of extreme heat, low humidity, and record drought conditions, we urge Santa Rosans to make safe choices and NOT use fireworks when celebrating the Fourth of July this year.

Regardless of the allure and nostalgia of fireworks, remember that ALL fireworks are illegal in Santa Rosa and the surrounding unincorporated areas. Concerned calls from our community reporting the use of fireworks are on the rise. We’re urging those that are using fireworks to STOP immediately and safely dispose of unspent fireworks.

Enforcement teams from both the police and fire departments will be patrolling areas and will cite individuals violating the City’s fireworks ban, including fines up to $1,000. But please don’t let it get to that point.

Nationwide, more than 16,000 reported fires are started by fireworks annually not to mention hundreds of preventable injuries. Conditions remain dry and an evening of fireworks is not worth the risk to yourself or the community.

We are all accountable for doing our part to protect Santa Rosa from the threat of wildfire. Please keep this in mind as you make your plans for the upcoming holiday.

Celebrate safely and be well,
Chief Scott Westrope and Chief Rainer Navarro
