Online reporting of illegal fireworks activity in San José now available

The City of San Jose has a pilot program through Tuesday, July 5 that increases fireworks enforcement efforts in neighborhoods and parks.

Fireworks cause more than 15,000 fires every year, and half of reported fires on July 4 are started by fireworks. Additionally, sparklers alone caused more than one-quarter of emergency room injuries seen in 2014. (see statistics)

All fireworks in San Jose are illegal. To report use of fireworks, use the city's online form.
