Fireworks Prohibited in Redlands

The Fourth of July is approaching, and while we do not want to prevent anyone from celebrating in their own way, we want to remind everyone that fireworks are strictly prohibited within the City of Redlands. If you are caught using or in possession of fireworks, our fire marshals can and will cite you and confiscate all of your fireworks.

If you see anyone with fireworks, please notify us using our online Illegal Fireworks Online Tip Form.


The Fire Administration office is closed to the public.  Information on Fire Plan Review and Inspections can be found here.

The Redlands Fire Department strives to be a progressive organization that leads the community in public safety. The service we provide is of the highest quality and recognized as “The Redlands Way.”

Emergency Management

Emergency Management in the City of Redlands is coordinated within the Fire Department. Emergency Management is the framework for which companies, communities, and organizations respond to natural and man-made disasters and acts of terrorism.


Fire Suppression & Operations

The Fire Suppression & Operations Division of the Fire Department is responsible for putting out fires, emergency rescues and medical emergency response.  The four fire stations in Relands are staffed 24/7 to ensure quick response times to keep fire damage to a minimum.

When not fighting fires the Suppression & Operations Division spends time maintaining their equipment and training on the latest fire fighting techniques.
