The Pleasanton Police Department and the Livermore-Pleasanton Fire Department are reminding residents of Pleasanton that all fireworks, including those labeled "Safe and Sane," are illegal in the city of Pleasanton.
"The city's strong enforcement posture on the use of fireworks is intended to reduce personal injuries and minimize property damage from uncontrolled fires as a result of the misuse of illegal fireworks," Police Capt. David Spiller, Patrol Commander, said.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission reports that there are approximately 200 fireworks injuries around the nation each day during the month surrounding the Fourth of July holiday.
"The Pleasanton Police Department joins the Livermore-Pleasanton Fire Department in encouraging the public to enjoy one of the many professional fireworks displays scheduled over the weekend," Spiller added.
