Fireworks Safety

Fireworks Safety Tips

Only Safe and Sane fireworks are legal in the City of Roseville. The legal sale of fireworks at designated booths begins at noon, June 28. Sales run through July 4 from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. each day.

Remember, any firework that flies in the air, darts across the ground or explodes is considered illegal in California. If it doesn't have the California State Fire Marshal's seal on the packaging, it's illegal.

The legal time period for discharge of Safe and Sane fireworks is from 12 p.m. on June 28 through 11:59 p.m. on July 4.

Balancing a growing local economy and future water supply

Homebuilding and affordable housing continue to be essential in California even as the State experiences a second consecutive dry year.

Conserve energy and stay informed this summer

There are steps we can all take to be prepared ahead of a hot, dry summer.

Although Roseville Electric Utility typically has a sufficient portfolio of resources to meet our customers’ electric needs at peak demand, we are planning ahead to make sure everyone is as prepared as possible.

We have a number of resources available to ensure you are receiving the most up-to-date information and conservation tips.
