[ARCHIVED] All Fireworks Prohibited in Paso Robles

Emergency Services Logo

PASO ROBLES, CA – Paso Robles Fire and Emergency Services would like to remind residents that all fireworks including “Safe and Sane” fireworks are prohibited in the City of Paso Robles.  

It’s that time of year when Americans everywhere will be celebrating the Fourth of July holiday with family, friends, and fireworks. 

A new report by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) finds a significant upward trend in fireworks-related injuries. Between 2006 and 2021, injuries with fireworks climbed 25% in the U.S., according to CPSC estimates. Last year, at least nine people died, and an estimated 11,500 were injured in incidents involving fireworks. 

This year the City of Paso Robles is increasing our enforcement.  Paso Robles Police officers and firefighters will be using aerial device technology with GPS and video capabilities to help us pinpoint the location where fireworks are being used.  Citations of up to $1000 will be issued to those caught setting off fireworks. 

Please help us by celebrating this 4th of July without using consumer fireworks.  The City of Paso Robles in conjunction with Travel Paso and private sponsors is hosting a free 4th of July Celebration at Barney Schwartz Park from 2 PM – 10 PM.  For more information, go to
