DETAILS:

Possession of fireworks in Oxnard is illegal. The Oxnard Police Department will continue its aggressive “no tolerance” fireworks enforcement this summer particularly during the 4th of July weekend. Possession of dangerous fireworks is prohibited by Oxnard City Ordinance Section 7-147.1(B)(A)(1) and possession of safe and sane fireworks is prohibited by OXO 7-147.1(B)(A)(2). The fine for possessing dangerous fireworks is $1,000 and fine for possessing safe and sane fireworks is $250.

When fireworks are observed or otherwise disturbing, residents are encouraged to call the City of Oxnard Police and Fire Emergency Communications Center at 385-7740 describing what is occurring, the location, and describing or naming who is disturbing with fireworks.

Note that the Fireworks Hotline was discontinued two years ago because few calls were made to that number.
