UNNC COMMUNITY NEWS AND EVENTS UNNC is sharing important information with our neighbors: 1). Just A Quick Reminder (We know you know this!) Our public safety officials asked us to share -- All fireworks are illegal in the city of Los Angeles! 2). Help Save A Life A great resource if you find a runaway pup! Several local animal rescue and support organizations have joined together to help save dogs lost on the streets (e.g., frightened by fireworks) and reunite them with their owners. (This effort is active for the next few days). 3).
