Independence Day Holiday After Action Report

PUBLIC SAFETY AFTER ACTION REPORT
The "after action" report, prepared by the Costa Mesa Police Department and the Costa Mesa Fire Department, covering their activities and the results thereof over the multiple-day Independence Day holiday this year is available at the City website, HERE.

CHARTS SUMMARIZE
The following two charts summarize some of the activities over the holiday.  Click on the image to enlarge if necessary.
READ THE REPORT AND RECOMMENDATIONS
Please take a few minutes to read the comprehensive report.  It provides not only a clear overview of this year's activities, but also a list of 13 recommendations for future years.  That list appears here (click on the image to enlarge it):
KUDOS TO OUR PUBLIC SAFETY FOLKS
Thanks to the men and women of the Costa Mesa Fire Department and the Costa Mesa Police Department for their diligence again over the past Independence Day holiday.  The fireworks exploded for a couple weeks before and a couple weeks after the already too long period allowed by law.  Pets were terrorized and, I am told, veterans suffered, too.

MAYBE, JUST MAYBE...
Perhaps, one day the residents of this city will come to their senses and celebrate this holiday with one, big community fireworks extravaganza instead of permitting the so-called safe and sane fireworks to be fired-up for several days.  Next week the holiday falls on Monday, so I won't be surprised if we see a week of safe and sane fireworks, culminating on that day.  Too bad for us all.
