4th of July - Celebrate Safely!

 

According to recent CPSC Data, in 2014 alone, U.S. hospital emergency rooms treated an estimated 10,500 people for fireworks related injuries; 51% of those injuries were to the extremities and 38% were to the head.  Celebrate safely and smart this season, by refraining from the use of consumer fireworks!

Fireworks are illegal in all parts of unincorporated Santa Cruz County including areas covered by the Aptos/La Selva Fire District, which includes Aptos, La Selva Beach, Day Valley and Rio Del Mar. Fireworks purchased in Watsonville shall remain and be used within the city limits of Watsonville. Please check out their safety guidelines here. Use of fireworks outside of Watsonville city limits can result in fines of $1000.

Safe and fun local activities for the 4th include: The Worlds Shortest Parade on Soquel Dr. (near State Park), the La Selva Beach 4th of July parade, the “Party in the Park” event at Aptos Village Park, the Firecracker 5k/10k race at Harvey West Park in Santa Cruz, or the professionally produced fireworks show at Skypark in Scotts Valley. 

For more info on Aptos-specific events, visit the Aptos Chamber of Commerce website.

NOTE: Our Admin Office will be closed on Monday, July 4th, for the holiday. Please call the Sheriff’s office to report any sightings of illegal fireworks. Messages left on the Admin. phone will not be heard until Tuesday, July 5th.

SCAM ALERT - Beware of False "Firefighter Charity" Calls Minimize

Residents of Aptos and the surrounding area are being targeted by a phone scam operation.  Callers claim to be firefighters with the Aptos/La Selva Fire District, who are collecting money for a Burn Foundation (or other) charity cause.  We urge the public to NOT give any credit card information, bank numbers or other personal info to these callers.  They are not associated with the District in any way, and local law enforcement has been alerted to the issue.  These callers seem to be using rotating cell phone numbers with a local (831) area code, which disconnects immediately after calling.
