Rules Regarding Fireworks Vary Across Mother Lode

Sonora, CA — Fire officials are urging Tuolumne County residents to remember that fireworks are illegal, regardless of whether they are labeled “safe and sane.”

“You can’t possess fireworks in Tuolumne County of any type,” says Cal Fire Battalion Chief Dennis Townsend. “Transporting them into the county or through the county is also a separate violation.”

Meanwhile in Calaveras County, fireworks labeled “safe and sane” are legal in most areas. The exceptions are the regions encompassed by the Ebbetts Pass Fire District and the Central Calaveras Fire Protection District in Mountain Ranch.

Fireworks of all kinds are also banned on federal lands across California.
