They forgot the one that causes the most fires:

I agree. Or they should have been more generic. As soon as you start a list you risk that some things were omitted.

The list should have started with this warning:

If you are stupid, back away. If you are not sure just how stupid you are: back away.

It used to be the fireworks were allowed at City park, but then it got out of control and people didn't clean up after themselves - not necessarily all of them were Folsom residents. They banned the fireworks in the parks, but all that did was kick it down the road to the school grounds like Theodore Judah and the track at Sutter Middle where, once again, people don't clean up after themselves. Common courtesy is going extinct.
