The City reminds residents to stay safe during the Independence Day holiday

7/1/2020…San Clemente, California…The Fourth of July holiday weekend is quickly approaching and residents and visitors are reminded that the use of all fireworks, including Safe & Sane fireworks, are strictly prohibited within city limits. The use of illegal fireworks can cause damage to property and do significant harm to people and animals. San Clemente Police Services will be actively patrolling and enforcing for this type of activity throughout the weekend. If you experience illegal fireworks in your neighborhood, please call the Orange County Sheriff’s Department at (949) 770-6011.

The City’s fireworks display will be hosted at 9 p.m. from the Vista Hermosa Sports Park and will be live streamed. For the safety of the community, the sports park, including ball fields, the aquatics center, and surrounding trail, will be closed to all public access beginning July 3 at 1 p.m. thorough July 4 at 11 p.m. The City urges residents to stay home, avoid gatherings, and celebrate only with members of their households.

As households celebrate Independence Day, please remember to take all necessary safety precautions to protect you and members of your household. The City has compiled a list of reminders and precautions for encouraging a safe and healthy Fourth of July.


The City recognizes the beach is a popular destination on the Fourth of July. Here are some practical steps you can take to help ensure the safety of yourself and your family while at the beach this time of year:

  • Check with the lifeguards on current conditions before entering the water.
  • Swim near a lifeguard.
  • Never swim alone.
  • Swim sober.
  • Never dive head first into unknown waters or into shallow breaking waves.


  • Keep pets indoors in a quiet area, or run the TV or music to drown out outside sounds.
  • Remove any items that your pet could destroy or that would be harmful if chewed.
  • If you know that your pet is distressed by loud noises, consult your veterinarian in advance.
  • Be sure your pets are wearing identification tags, are microchipped, and are licensed with updated information.


  • Check gas grill hoses for cracks, holes and leaks.
  • Keep children away from grills.
  • Gas leaks, blocked tubes, and propane tanks can be a cause of grill fires and explosions.
  • Keep the grill at least two feet away from decks, siding, branches and any outdoor equipment that can catch fire quickly.
  • Protect yourself from the sun. Use sunscreen.
  • With weather warming up, reminder to stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water.


As San Clemente is following the COVID-19 guidelines issued by the County of Orange and the State of California, residents and visitors are reminded to take the following precautions while in a public setting:

  • Continue to physically distance by staying 6-10 feet away from others, especially if you are at high risk for serious illness from COVID-19 (over age 65 or any age with underlying medical conditions).
  • Wear a cloth face-covering. All County residents and visitors shall wear face coverings in certain high-risk situations, as required by the Guidance for the Use of Face Coverings issued by California Department of Public Health on June 18, 2020. The California Department of Health reminds you that, “Your mask protects others. Their mask protects you.
  • Avoid large crowds and mass gatherings. Gatherings that bring multiple households together are prohibited in California.
  • Wash hands regularly and avoid touching your face.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily.
  • Stay home if you are sick.
