Fireworks in Alhambra; Los Angeles County urges caution

The Fourth of July weekend means barbecues, American flags, and fireworks in Alhambra. “Safe and Sane” fireworks, the kind that don’t explode or launch into the air, are allowed to be sold and ignited in the city, but there are still some precautions people can use to stay safe.

The Los Angeles County Fire Department recommends using one firework at a time, never taking them apart, and having a bucket of water handy. There are more tips on their website.

"Each year thousands of people, many of them children, are burned, blinded, and even disfigured by fireworks. In addition, fireworks cause fires that cost us millions of dollars in property loss," the County says in an online statement. 

There are 13 locations where residents can buy fireworks. Many nonprofit organizations benefit from the sale of fireworks. The Alhambra Rotary Club, All Souls Youth Ministry, and Alhambra American Little League are some of the organizations hosting stands this year. Here's a map of all the fireworks stands in the city: 

Safe and Sane fireworks are banned in most of LA County but are allowed in Alhambra and other San Gabriel Valley cities including Azusa, El Monte, South El Monte, Temple City, and Rosemead.

The city's annual Independence Day celebration at Almansor Park will take place on Saturday. Carnival games and food trucks will be set up by 2pm. The professional fireworks display will start at 9pm. Residents are not allowed to bring their own fireworks to the park.
