City Kicks off Anti-Fireworks Campaign

The City of Fairfield is kicking off its anti-fireworks campaign focusing on possible injury or death resulting from using fireworks. The explosive message opens with the words “Don’t be a Dummy” and shows how dangerous fireworks are by demonstrating with test dummies, while urging residents to celebrate the holiday safely.

The recreational or civilian use of fireworks can result in personal injury, death, emergency room visits, and extensive property damage. Fireworks are at the root of over 17,000 fires per year in the U.S. The City thanks you for your cooperation in keeping the community safe.

Police and Fire Department staffing will be increased in the days surrounding the July 4 holiday. A dedicated team of proactive officers will be on duty to respond to calls related to fireworks and disturbances. Citations may be given to any citizen found using, making, selling, or buying fireworks.

To report the use of illegal fireworks or other neighborhood disturbances, please contact the Fairfield Police Department at 707.428.7300, or call 9-1-1 in the event of an emergency or active crime.

The City wishes everyone a safe and happy Fourth of July! Don’t Be a Dummy! Keep Fairfield safe and enjoy a professional fireworks display in Solano County. See video.
