He states the careless handling of fireworks pose a major danger to California and its residents, and that fireworks have caused serious injuries nationwide. Children are at the greatest risk of injury.

In a news release issued June 16, 2017 CAL FIRE warns the public of the state’s zero tolerance regarding the use or sale of illegal fireworks and states they are working closely with local law enforcement and firefighting agencies to seize illegal fireworks and prosecute those found in possession of them.
