The Pasadena Fire and Police Departments remind all residents and visitors that the best way to celebrate the Fourth of July holiday with family and friends is by attending professional fireworks shows such as Americafest at the Rose Bowl Stadium.
The sale or possession of all fireworks is illegal in Pasadena. Violators are subject to confiscation and impound of vehicles; up to one year in jail and fines up to $50,000. Call Pasadena Police at (626) 744-4241 to report illegal fireworks.
Due to the high potential for fire hazards and injuries, Pasadena police and fire personnel will staff checkpoints around the Rose Bowl Stadium to seize all fireworks and arrest offenders. In addition, the Pasadena Fire Department will begin applying Phos-Chek on Tuesday, June 25, to brush areas surrounding the Rose Bowl Stadium. The main ingredients of this annual, preventative application of fire retardant are phosphates and fertilizers that help prevent trees and grasslands from burning and to re-vegetate any burned wild land areas.

It is a sad day for the Northwest community. The "Mayor of Northwest Pasadena," Ralph Poole, died early the morning of June 17, 2013, at 3:30 a.m. On Friday he had a massive heart attack and lived long enough to spend time with some of his friends and family.
Mr. Poole was a beloved and influential community leader, a tireless advocate for those in need, and a warrior of local justice.
A veteran of the U.S. Navy, he worked at various schools throughout the community as an educator, mentor and writer. He worked with young people between the ages of four to 15 in a program known as Project Safetime, which operated in Kings Villages Apartments.
Mr. Poole was one of the original Board members of the Fair Oaks Project Area Committee (PAC), where he served as Chairman. He also served as an organizational representative on that committee since its inception in 1985, while simultaneously serving on the City of Pasadena's Northwest Commission since 1990.
