While the City of Santa Monica does not have a fireworks display on the 4th of July, there are many professional fireworks displays and events planned in and around our surrounding area.

Below is a partial list of celebrations you may wish to attend on the 4th of July:

Marina Del Rey in the Marina Harbor: Visit: http://www.visitmarinadelrey.com/schedule/events/07/2012.

Culver City High School: Gates open at 5 p.m. Fireworks at 9 p.m. Visit: http://culvercityfireworksshow.com.

Pacific Palisades: Parade at 2 p.m. along Sunset Blvd. Fireworks show at Palisades Charter High School with entertainment starting at 6:30 p.m. Fireworks at 9 p.m. $6 at the gate. Visit www.palisadesparade.org.

El Segundo daytime events: 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at El Segundo Recreation Park. Entertainment starts at 5 p.m. Visit: www.southbayevents.com.

Redondo Beach Pier: Gates open at 2 p.m. Visit: www.redondofireworks.com.

For your safety, the Santa Monica Police Department reminds residents that the use of fireworks often starts brush, home, and forest fires, endangering the lives of many unnecessarily.

SMPD Sgt. Richard Lewis said many people, including young children, are injured or burned each year from using even "Safe and Sane" fireworks.

"The Santa Monica Police Department reminds you that all fireworks are illegal to sell, possess, or use in the City," Lewis said. "This includes the Safe and Sane fireworks as well. Any fireworks in your possession will be confiscated. Their possession is punishable by fines, imprisonment or both."

As a long-time property claims adjuster, I cannot count the number of fireworks-related fire claims that I have worked over the years. One, in particular, stays with me. An elderly grandmother was killed when she couldn't get out of her home . The fire was caused by a rocket that went astray. Fireworks, like all explosives, are best left to the professionals
