Firework/Noise Complaints should be made to the 24-hour non-emergency line (559) 675-7770

Reports of illegal activity (including illegal fireworks) should be reported to 9-1-1 ONLY IF:
* They are in progress
* You can identify the location they are being deployed from, AND
* If they pose a threat/danger to yourself or others

If your report does not meet these guidelines, please call the non-emergency line. Deputies will patrol and perform area checks throughout the county, and respond to calls based on priority.

As a reminder, please only dial 9-1-1 for EMERGENCIES.
