- Handful of Bay Area cities buck the trend of banning all fireworks
By Filipa Ioannou - Friday Jun 30, 2017
A thick layer of fog was draped over San Bruno on Friday, but the fireworks stands set up in the parking lot of the Shops at Tanforan mall boasted boxes with neon text screaming “Dazzle the crowd!” “Backyard Barrage!” “Peacock tail!” and “Phantom Awestruck.”“People are always procrastinators,” said 18-year-old Charlene Smith, who was selling fireworks to benefit the San Bruno Rotary Club.Fireworks of all kinds are illegal almost everywhere in the Bay Area, but a few cities — San Bruno, Pacifica, Newark, Union City, Dublin, Sebastopol, Rohnert Park, Petaluma and Cloverdale — allow the sale of “safe and sane” pyrotechnics, the kind that are neither projectiles nor explosives.Many of the groups hawking the fireworks do so to help law enforcement offset costs of the holiday or to support local do-good organizations.In Pacifica, for instance, fireworks are sold by nonprofits and an 8 percent surcharge added to all sales is used to offset public safety costs dealing with the holiday, according to Capt. Joe Spanheimer, a spokesman for the Pacifica Police Department.Just because the oceanside city allows the sale of sparklers, smoke balls and other safe and sane offerings designed to crackle, glitter and flicker, doesn’t mean its problems with illegal fireworks are settled.“Currently, there appears to be a culture in Pacifica, particularly in the southern end of the City, which believes that illegal fireworks are just something that is part of the July 4th celebration,” the police report said.Several recent busts have seen Bay Area law enforcement agencies confiscate hundreds of pounds of illegal fireworks.[...] although a hundred pounds of fireworks may sound like a lot, those seizures are just a tiny piece of the picture, said Sgt. Ray Kelly of the Alameda County Sheriff's Office.In Stockton, where safe and sane fireworks are legal, police confiscated more than 950 pounds of illegal fireworks from a 37-year-old man on Sunday afternoon.Perhaps the suspect, identified by police as a Stockton resident, was aware that weather forecasters expect the inland areas will be the best places to watch fireworks, with cloudy conditions dominating the whole day in some areas, like Ocean Beach, while in the Financial District, the cloud cover will probably start to roll in around 6 p.m.
