Keep Topanga Safe. Refrain From Using Fireworks to Celebrate July 4
Article posted:  June 29, 2022, 1:00 p.m.

Not only is Topanga designated a Severe High Fire Risk area, it is also one of the most difficult areas in the state to defend in a wildfire. Fireworks can start brush fires, and are prohibited in unincorporated LA County. DO NOT set them off in our mountains!

Even sparklers are an ignition source that can start a fire in dry grass.

In 2018, fireworks started an estimated 19,500 fires, including 1,900 structure fires, 500 vehicle fires, and 17,100 outside and other fires. These fires caused five deaths, 46 civilian injuries, and $105 million in direct property damage.

For decades, Arson Watch volunteers patrol multiple locations throughout Topanga during Red Flag conditions and the week of July 4th.

Keep Topanga and its neighboring communities safe on July 4th. Celebrate the upcoming holiday responsibly!
