From the New Fullerton blog
Safe and sane fireworks were illegal in the City of Fullerton for over 22 years until over 53% of the voters passed Measure X last year, allowing the sale and use of these fireworks, on the 4th of July.
Prior to the passage of Measure X, former Fullerton Council Member Travis Kiger said that “This goes back to freedom and the Fourth of July. This is America. Why is our city acting like our parent and telling us what we can do on our driveway,” according to the Daily Titan.
The Fullertonian blog reported this month that Council Member Jan Flory, who defeated Kiger in November, “suggested that for each firework sale, customers are provided a map of the city that limits which areas they can and cannot set them off.”
“I raise that issue because we have a huge watershed area here associated with the Brea Dam,” said Flory, who lives close to the Dam and notes that the area is a “huge fire hazard.”
Other council members, including Jennifer Fitzgerald, agreed with Flory. Fitzgerald went so far to suggest that vendors must provide maps of fire hazard areas as a condition of getting a booth.
