Fireworks Hotline

The Oakland Police and Fire Departments are working together to limit the impact of illegal fireworks activity through July 4.

Those caught with fireworks, even the “Safe & Sane” brand, will be fined up to $1,000. If you are in possession of large quantities of fireworks, you could face penalties of $5,000 to $10,000 as well as imprisonment.

In an effort to get illegal fireworks out of residential neighborhoods and prevent wildfires, the Oakland Fire Department has set up firework collection barrels at the following fire stations.

The collection sites are for residents that want to surrender unused fireworks, and also for OPD to drop off confiscated fireworks.
• Station 1: 1603 Martin Luther King Jr. Way
• Station 3: 1445 14th Street
• Station 4: 1235 International Boulevard
• Station 5: 934 34th Street
• Station 18: 5008 Bancroft Avenue
• Station 20: 1401 98th Avenue

If you know someone or see someone who is in possession, selling, and/or lighting fireworks, please call the Fireworks Tip Line at 510-238-2373.
