Department of Public Safety Warns Against Fireworks Usage

June 29, 2016  | 1 min read

The Department of Public Safety (DPS) reminds all community members that the use, possession, handling, and storage of all forms of fireworks on the Pepperdine Malibu Campus, and in other local jurisdictions with high hazard fire zones, is strictly prohibited by Los Angeles County fire codes.

Officials at the Los Angeles County Fire Department have expressed a particular concern about the potential of fireworks initiating wildfires due to Southern California’s current drought conditions.

For questions regarding this regulation, or to report the use of illegal fireworks, contact DPS at 310-506-4700 or through the LiveSafe mobile application.

A list of professional fireworks shows is available on the Los Angeles County Fire Department website.
