Reporting Fireworks

Updated: Jun 10, 2019

With over 18,500 fires started by fireworks each year in the U.S., the San José Fire Department emphasizes that fireworks are illegal, dangerous and can result in fires and injuries that are easily preventable. 

San José residents can "Snap, Click, Report" violators online:

  1. Snap: Safely take a photo of video of the person participating in illegal activity. 

  2. Click: Visit www.sanjoseca.gov/fireworks

  3. Report: Complete the online form with accurate information regarding the illegal firework activity. Include as much information as possible.

The City also offers a 24 hour hotline, (408) 535-5600, to assist residents that do not have internet access and wish to report violators.
