If you participated in the use of fireworks this July 4th, please read this message:
These are just a few of the latest reports on injuries and, sadly, even a fatality relating to fireworks. None of these people thought they would be the instigator or victim of a fireworks injury, so please don’t be fooled into thinking this couldn’t happen to you.
Protect yourself and your loved ones: Don’t use fireworks! Don’t buy fireworks! Don’t leave fireworks in reach of kids! They’re dangerous and illegal.
Sincerely,Ivan D. Lee, Fire Marshal
If you have leftover fireworks: Bring them to the nearest fire station for proper disposal—no questions will be asked. Never place them in the trash, which could endanger our waste haulers. Find a fire station at http://www.sanjoseca.gov/index.aspx?NID=755
