Without safety, there are no fireworks. That’s the motto of the National Fireworks Association.
Safety is the number one priority for the NFA. The President of the National Fireworks Safety Council, Nancy Blogin, says all the fireworks are hand fired and they have strict rules on and near the field where the fireworks are set off.
Blogin says, “Once it’s inspected, they can only go out one at a time, one person from their company. Then they have to leave the field. The safety team does that because they don’t want anyone stepping on wires or moving product around. They want everything to be perfect.”
Blogin says they also teach those who attend the convention how to properly dispose of fireworks.
The convention concludes tomorrow night with a large firework display at the Lake Erie Speedway.
The gates open for the fireworks display at 5pm, with musical guests, ‘The Ruffriders,’ playing 5:30-7:30, and the fireworks display beginning at 7:30pm.
The price is $20 per car.
