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 normal business days from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., 978-567-3375.
