What can you do about fireworks?

 

In case you were planning to set off a couple cherry bombs on July Fourth -- don't. The Menlo Park Police Department reminds everyone that all fireworks are prohibited in the city.

That includes "safe & sane" fireworks, sparklers, and all other types. The police department said in a press release that officers will respond to reports of fireworks by warning, citing, and possibly arresting those responsible and also confiscating the materials.

The city refers people to here and here to find professional, legal fireworks displays.

To report fireworks scofflaws, call 330-6300.
