Reminder that Fireworks are Illegal in Belmont

Post Date:07/01/2014 4:34 PM

Contact: Captain Patrick Halleran (650) 595-7430

The Belmont Fire Department would like to remind everyone that the sale, possession and use of all fireworks are prohibited within the Belmont Fire Protection District.  This includes the "safe and sane" variety of fireworks that may be legal in other areas of San Mateo County.  The Belmont Fire Protection District includes the City of Belmont and the unincorporated section of Belmont, in the Harbor Industrial Area.

Please be extremely careful during the Fourth of July holiday season and throughout the summer months with all outdoor activities.  The abundance of dry grass and brush in the area, coupled with the on-going California drought, has created extremely dangerous fire conditions.

Large professional public fireworks displays will be held this Fourth of July in both Foster City and Redwood City.
