MySafe:LA is pleased to introduce F/X Reporter, a new smartphone app for reporting fireworks. Using this app, you can send general or very specific reports about the use of fireworks that will be routed to local police and fire agencies.
Capture Illegal Fireworks Activity
Now, for the first time, you can use your phone to record the use of fireworks. You can be general (in the distance) to very specific (here’s the address). You may add photos that you see. Create as many reports for fireworks being used as required. Do it daily, or on the 4th of July or New Years Eve.
This important app is part of MySafe:LA’s effort to develop quality information (data) to help us and local government better understand and explain how and when illegal fireworks are being used.
Currently, F/X Reporter is designed for use in Los Angeles County. Future releases may expand into other areas in the State.
F/X Reporter is FREE.
This year, report fireworks every time you see them.
The purpose of F/X Reporter is to crowdsource where fireworks are being used in Los Angeles County. This app is not a call for service. If you see a fire, or witness someone being injured, dial 9-1-1 immediately.
F/X Reporter may be used by local fire and police to better understand where fireworks are being used, so they may determine the best use of resources to support the community.
MySafe:LA works with both the Los Angeles City and Los Angeles County Fire Departments, but is a separate organization, focused on fire prevention and community resilience. We have partnered with the LAFD since 2009.
