Highlights: 4th of July Rocket Run & Celebration, Illegal Fireworks Social Ordinance, Mosquito Abatement
Connect With Pacifica This Week

It’s time to have some fun and it’s time to be careful.  Everyone can have fun over the holiday being with family and friends, doing some grilling, enjoying the festivities at Frontierland Park on Tuesday (thank you Parks, Beaches and Recreation Department) and celebrating the birthday of our great nation.

At the same time, please be careful with any fireworks that you plan on using to commemorate the 4th of July.  Even the “safe and sane” fireworks need to be discharged wisely.  And keep in mind, if someone gets hurt or property is damaged as a result of the use of fireworks from your property, whether you are directly responsible or not, you can be held legally responsible.  So, please, be a great neighbor and keep Pacifica safe over the holiday.

Please let me know if you have comments or questions, and  thank you for wanting to   Connect with Pacifica!

Pacifica's Illegal Fireworks Social Host Ordinance
The July 4th holiday will soon be upon us. It is our goal for the community to have a fun, safe and clean July 4th celebration this year. See the Pacifica Police Chief's July 4th message with important considerations to safely enjoy the holiday.
The City of Pacifica has adopted an Illegal Fireworks Social Host Ordinance with a $1,000 fine for persons who host gatherings or allow discharge of illegal fireworks on their property. See the Press Release for more information about this social host ordinance. 

A free mobile app called " Nail 'Em" available from Apple iTunes and Google Play allows residents to report possession, use or sale of illegal fireworks to the Pacifica Police, including photos and GPS location. Find out more here.
