The U. S. Coast Guard is planning to establish a temporary safety zone around San Francisco's Ferry Plaza tonight for a New Year's Eve fireworks display.

The safety zone will extend 1,000 feet out from a point in the waters off the Ferry Plaza and Pier 14 beginning at 11:59 p.m. tonight and continuing until 12:30 a.m. Friday.

During that time boaters will be unable enter the safety zone without authorization from the Captain of the Port of San Francisco, according to Coast Guard officials.
