Executive order regarding fireworks

Oh yes by all means get those illegal fireworks...the safe and sane ones could never cause fires, especially when modified...heaven forbid we eliminated person fireworks now that we are headed into a long term drought...

by the Governor of the State of California

WHEREAS last year California experienced devastating wildfires that destroyed lives, property, businesses, and the environment and resulted in the largest deployment of firefighting resources and the highest number of evacuations in state history; and

WHEREAS this year, California once again finds itself facing an imminent threat of devastating wildfires and imminent peril to people and property; and

WHEREAS the number of dead, dying and diseased trees continues to increase as a result of bark beetle infestation in Southern California, providing a readily available fuel load which creates an imminent threat of catastrophic fires; and....


NOW, THEREFORE, I, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Governor of the State of California, in accordance with the authority vested in me by the Constitution and statutes of the State of California, do hereby issue the following orders to become effective immediately:

IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE) shall secure and deploy additional resources that are necessary, as determined by the Director, to protect the safety of persons and property from wildfires during periods of elevated fire risk as follows:


IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that CAL FIRE develop and implement aggressive interdiction plans for the enforcement of laws regarding arson and illegal and dangerous fireworks, focusing on high traffic, high impact, high volume distribution and transportation points which may be the sources for the ignition of wildland fires in California.
