Summer is here and the San Jose Fire Department reminds you that fireworks are dangerous and illegal.  Each year about 10,000 people visit the ER with Fireworks-related injuries. The majority are children ages 5-19. Even a Safe and Sane Sparkler burns at 1200-1400’ so leave all fireworks to the Pro’s
  •  Approximately 10,000 Injuries annually on the 4th alone
  •  The risk of fireworks injury was highest for children ages 5-19, and adults 25-44, in an atypical year of a very comparable risk across much of the population.
  •  Nearly 90% of emergency room fireworks injuries involve fireworks consumers are permitted to use.
  •  FIREWORKS are unpredictable and dangerous, especially in the hands of amateurs.
  •  Unbeknownst to most, sparklers burn at a temperature of more than 1200 degrees Fahrenheit Temperature hot enough to melt gold. Water boils at 212 degrees, nearly a thousand degrees cooler than sparklers burn!

Silicon Valley Crime Stoppers is a cooperative effort between the police departments of Silicon Valley, local media, and a Board of Directors comprised of local citizens. Crime Stoppers operates a 24-hour telephone line, (408) 947-STOP (7867), for citizens to report crimes or criminal activity anonymously. This program allows citizens with information about serious crime to report it without giving their name. Tips resulting in an arrest of suspects entitle the caller (identified by a code number given to them) to a cash reward. Citizens are urged to call (408) 947 – STOP if they have information on any other serious crime. Rewards up to $1,000 are offered for information leading to an arrest. Visit svcrimestoppers.org
