The summer season is upon us once again, starting with July Fourth celebrations and fireworks displays.  As usual with the June issue, this month’s DFS Briefs contains important information for fire departments as they prepare for fireworks displays, including contact information and a fireworks display checklist which provides guidelines for a fireworks program (before the show, day of the show, following the show).  As always, my office stands ready to provide technical, compliance, and enforcement support, 24/7 – especially during the busy 4th of July week. The following numbers may be called for immediate assistance:  outside of regular business hours (508) 820-2000 and during normal business days (8 a.m. to 4 p.m.), (978) 567-3375.

In addition, the June DFS Briefs contains an advisory on the 2017 Fire and Life Safety Educator of the Year Award, upcoming training opportunities and public education information.

Please be sure to avail yourself to all of the important information contained in the June DFS Briefs.
