July 5th is Around the Corner!

Independence Day is a special occasion meant for celebration, but it’s crucial to be aware of the potential dangers that come with it. The Santa Barbara County Fire Department reminds the public that all fireworks, including the so-called ‘safe and sane’ variety, are illegal in all unincorporated areas of Santa Barbara County, including the cities of Santa Barbara, Goleta, Carpinteria, Buellton and Solvang.

Attention Pet Owners

We would like to remind our community that our four-legged family members go missing during the Fourth of July, more than any other
day of the year. If you will not be home during the fireworks, please secure your pet indoors. It is not recommended to leave your pet outside loose in a yard on the evening of July Fourth.
