[ARCHIVED] Use Concord Connect App to Report Fireworks

Fireworks with x through it

All fireworks (even those labeled “safe and sane”) are illegal in Concord and all of Contra Costa County (except for permitted professional displays).  This includes bottle rockets, roman candles, firecrackers and sparklers.  Sparklers can reach 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit and account for most fireworks-related injuries to children age 5 and under.  Fireworks are dangerous and cause fires, which can result in severe injury and even death, as well as costly property damage.  
Concord Municipal Code 15.70.020 states that it is unlawful for any person to possess, transfer, manufacture, offer for sale, use or discharge any fireworks (except for permitted, professional displays).  There is a fine for violating this code, which can increase up to $500 for each violation.  
The amount of calls to the Concord PD Dispatch Center this time of year can cause our phone lines to become so tied-up that those in need of immediate police or medical help are delayed in getting assistance.  Therefore, please do not call Concord PD to report fireworks unless they pose an immediate threat to life or property and you are able to provide a specific location where they are being set off.  Instead, we strongly encourage community members to report fireworks through our Concord Connect App, which will be actively monitored for enforcement on a non-emergent response basis.  
Concord Connect can be easily accessed by both web browser and the Concord Connect mobile App.  However, it is easier to use via the Concord Connect mobile App.
To report fireworks using the App on your smart phone:Concord Connect App
  1. Open the “App Store” on your phone and download the “Concord Connect” App
  2. Click on “Make a New Request”
  3. Click on Fireworks Reporting
To report fireworks using the web browser:
  1. Go to the City of Concord website and click on “Report a Problem”
  2. Under “Report Online”, click on “Concord Connect App” 
  3. Click on Fireworks Reporting
  4. **Important** When selecting drop down responses, be sure to click back on the box with your selected response in order to “enter” the response and proceed to the next drop down.
We appreciate your cooperation in this effort and look forward to partnering with you to keep Concord safe!
