Description

Wildfire Matters Review Committee. Under current law, a
county may prohibit or restrict by ordinance the sale, use, and possession
of fireworks, including permissible fireworks (fireworks restrictions), for
a period that does not exceed one year in length within all or any part of
the unincorporated areas of the county; except that such an ordinance

shall not be in effect between May 31 and July 5 of any year unless the
ordinance includes an express finding of high fire danger, based on
competent evidence. The bill specifies that such an ordinance is in effect
for the period between May 31 and July 5 of any year only if the county
adopts by resolution such fireworks restrictions for such period, which
resolution includes an express finding of high fire danger, based on
competent evidence.
The bill also adds as a source of competent evidence justifying
a finding of high fire danger predictions of future fire danger such as
those issued by the national interragency coordination center or any
successor entity.
