Since almost everyone of

Since almost everyone of these replies today seem to be ignorant of the laws when it comes to public fireworks displays then maybe they should call the local fire departments BEFORE they shoot off their mouths. While most are not aware of the laws, the public display of fireworks that you see on the 4th take a great deal of planning and approval before they can be set off. Permits are issued by the local fire marshal in accordance with the Office of State Fire Marshal and the Federal government. Call Scott Garner, Frank Blackely or Donnie Hall and ask what it takes to shoot the fireworks for a public display. It involves a great deal of planning, training, and preparation just to set up a show for the general public. Call them and ask, the Fire Prevention Code is a public law and available for all to see. The use of the illegal fireworks upsets a great number of fire officials since they generally have to respond to an injury or death as the result of the illegal fireworks being shot off or they have to respond to a house fire that was set off from the use of these fireworks. Take a second and think about what you are doing this Fourth of July and leave the shooting of fireworks to the professionals. Spend your money on other things that can mean a lot more this Fourth of July!
