Law Enforcement personnel made 279 public contacts, wrote 10 fireworks citations, made one DUI arrest, and assisted other law enforcement agencies in 17 calls. 

Approximately 200 pounds of fireworks were confiscated throughout the county.  CAL FIRE has been conducting this operation for many years and has seen a marked reduction in fireworks violations.
