READY! SET! GO!

In Los Angeles County, wildfires will always be a natural part of the beautiful state we have chosen to call home. Wildfires will continue to be fueled by a build-up of dry vegetation and driven by hot, dry “Santa Ana” winds, making them extremely dangerous and challenging for firefighters to control. Please use the Ready! Set! Go! brochure to help you prepare your home so you can leave early; confident that you have done everything reasonably possible to protect your home from a destructive wildfire.

Fireworks Safety

The County of Los Angeles Fire Code, Title 32, Section 5601.3 states that it is illegal to store, manufacture, sell, use, or handle ALL FORMS of fireworks without a valid permit in unincorporated areas of Los Angeles County.

The Los Angeles County Fire Department encourages families to attend a public fireworks show conducted by State-licensed pyrotechnicians.  For a listing of 2021 professional fireworks shows, please click here.
