Safe and Sane Fireworks

The City of Rancho Cordova encourages residents to practice safe and sane fireworks use this Fourth of July season.  Always maintain a safe distance from people, structures, vehicles, and any flammable materials.  Cut or remove dry plant material  more frequently to reduce fire hazards. 

Keeping Pets Safe and Comfortable 

July 3rd and 4th are two of the busiest nights of the year for the City of Rancho Cordova's Animal Services team. Pets can become frightened by the loud sounds and unfamiliar sights during Fourth of July festivities and may try to escape. It is best to keep your pets safely indoors, or if you must take your dog with you to the Fourth of July celebration, keep him or her leashed and under your direct control at all times.

The hot temperatures can also put your pets at risk of heat stroke. Never leave your pet in a parked car, and take special care to keep your pet cool at home.
