This Wednesday, June 28, 2021, Salinas non-profit organizations will begin sales of “Safe-n-Sane” fireworks from 18 booths located throughout the city of Salinas.

While “Safe-n-Sane” fireworks are legal to purchase and use within the city limits between June 28th and July 5th, Salinas officials warn that they are on the lookout for those who are purchasing and using illegal fireworks.

Dangerous and illegal fireworks such as bottle rockets, M-80s, and mortars are prohibited throughout California, and persons found using, or in possession of, dangerous and illegal fireworks are subject to fines ranging from $1,250 to $50,000.

To make sure you and your family celebrate safely during the 4th of July, Salinas officials recommend the following “Safe-n-Sane” fireworks safety practices: see press release.

Salinas fire and police officials also encourage residents to report the use or sales of illegal fireworks with as much specific information as possible by visiting, using the “Salinas Connect” smartphone application, or call/text (831) 758-7474. Calls are monitored but will not be returned.
