Reminder - Fireworks are Illegal in Corona (Fines: Up to $1,000)

Post Date:06/12/2020 3:00 PM

The City of Corona would like to remind everyone that it is illegal to possess, discharge, or sell fireworks. Residents should adhere to the “no fireworks” law throughout the City of Corona (Corona Municipal Code 9.33.010-9.33.030).

Every year, people are seriously injured, property is damaged, and the risk of fires increases due to the illegal use of fireworks. Our dry conditions create a greater potential for fires caused by fireworks, especially in or near the wildland urban interface of the Cleveland National Forest and Santa Ana Riverbed areas. Public Safety spends an extraordinary amount of time and resources responding to firework related incidents that can negatively affect the response times for other serious emergencies.

Citations for violations of the City Ordinance banning fireworks will be issued to those possessing “Safe and Sane” fireworks; the fine is $500. The fine for possession of other types of fireworks (those not certified “Safe & Sane”) is $1000.

For general questions about fireworks, please call the Corona Fire Department at 951-736-2220. If you witness a fireworks violation, please report it by calling (951) 736-2330, option 3. Please leave 9-1-1 lines open for emergencies.

The City of Corona wishes to thank everyone for recognizing the seriousness of the “no fireworks” law and reminds everyone to be safe.
