Evolving climate conditions throughout the state have made wildfires a year-round concern, and the safety of our community is the highest priority. We can all work together to reduce the wildfire risk in Oceanside.
Play a part in preventing wildfires in our community:
There are other readiness and prevention steps to take as well:
Whatever the cause, Oceanside Fire Department (OFD) is prepared, sending extra units to brush fires and ready to add and request more ground and air resources as needed. OFD teams regularly conduct preventative burns, increase patrols in fire-prone areas, and participate in drills to combat any surge of a wildfire that could break out.
As we approach Independence Day, OFD wants to stress an important reminder: all consumer fireworks are illegal in the City of Oceanside. This includes sparklers, firecrackers, cherry bombs, roman candles, bottle rockets and more. Those in possession of fireworks will be cited by the Oceanside Police Department. Please leave it to the professionals.
