Fireworks and pyrotechnics permits, said ... [cached]

Fireworks and pyrotechnics permits, said James Murua, assistant fire chief and city fire marshal, must be signed by him or Fire Chief Eric Lahey about a week before a production can take place.

Most (applicants) give us a big book of what theyre putting in their show, Murua said, adding that these documents often include a site plan and details down to exactly how the show will synchronize with any musical accompaniment.
After it receives a permit application, the fire department visits the site on the day of the show and checks to make sure the company is setting up properly. Depending on the show, Murua said, the fire department will sometimes have personnel on hand during the event itself. For example, he said, the fire department is always on hand during events where indoor pyrotechnics are used.
For TinCaps games, were well aware of the company that does those, so we dont need to be at every game they shoot, because every show is basically the same, Murua said.
The vast majority of fireworks applications submitted to the city are approved, Murua said.
However, he noted that while it is a rarity, applications have been denied in the past.
There have been shows where people have wanted to do fireworks at certain sites (that arent approved) or they dont have all their documentation in place, he said.
Indeed, Murua agreed with Kingsburys sentiment, noting that more often than not, people shooting off their own fireworks present more of a hazard than professional companies.
The companies we work with, they do clean up after themselves after the shows, so things dont get left behind, he said.

My next visit was to Jim Murua, Assistant Chief Fire Marshall, who ranked the most frequent calls received involving the Fire Department, allowing me to create/organize a series of scenarios to share with students. I've recently requested the Police Department to do the same for me.

Based on the input from Dawn and Jim, I've created a PowerPoint presentation that they both have reviewed and approved for use.

"Most of the time, if someone gets injured with fireworks, it's usually a burn, usually to the face, arms, hands, something like that, the fingers," said Jim Murua, Fire Marshal for the Fort Wayne Fire Department.
