Fireworks are banned in Fremont
Submitted By Amiel Thurston, Deputy Fire Marshal
Please remember that the sale, possession, and use of all fireworks are banned within the City of Fremont. This ban includes the "safe and sane" variety of fireworks that are legal in some other cities.
The ban, in effect since December 1986, has helped reduce the number of injuries, wildland and structure fires caused by fireworks.
Safely Dispose of Fireworks
Need to dispose of your fireworks? Deliver them to any Fremont Fire Station between 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. any day of the week. Please do not leave fireworks if personnel are not present to accept them.
Fire and Police resources will be on patrol in Fremont during the peak times of concern to maintain an active vigilance against fireworks use. Fireworks use is subject to confiscation and citation.
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 has created an extremely dangerous fire condition.
The Fremont Fire Department has established an informational hot line at (510) 494-4204 that will be operational on July 4th from 6 p.m. - 1 a.m. (July 5th).
