Fireworks are Prohibited

Each year, in all communities, the holiday is used as a justification for the discharge of illegal fireworks. The Port Hueneme Police Department receives hundreds of complaints regarding illegal fireworks on July 4th, and the days leading to the Fourth of July.  The complaints range from pets that are extremely frightened by the noise and commotion of fireworks, to veterans who suffer an adverse reaction to fireworks.  Each year and despite warnings, fireworks account for numerous fires as well as physical injuries to citizens across the County of Ventura.  In the City of Port Hueneme, All fireworks are prohibited.
