Business owner got the only Wichita fireworks citation issued in July
But one Wichita man is still dealing with the remnants of a July 4 celebration more than a month later after a rooftop fireworks show drew fire crews to his downtown Wichita smoke shop, 42 Degrees Below. Last year, authorities issued just three citations for illegal fireworks in Wichita, said Wichita Fire Capt. Stuart Bevis, all on or near the holiday. Fire officials allege that on July 3 or 4, Shepherd and others ignited fireworks atop the roof of 42 Degrees Below, 1203 E. Douglas. During the nine days they could be sold and discharged legally this year, investigators estimate fireworks caused $210,000 in property damage up from $118,000 in 2011 for the same time period, Deputy Fire Chief Ron Aaron said. More than half of that amount $120,000 came from a house fire on July 4, he said. Fireworks debris thrown in an outside trash sparked a blaze at a home near 13th and Oliver on July 1, accounting for another $60,000 loss . Fireworks were also to blame for $20,000 in damage to playground equipment at Ray Woodman park on June 29, Aaron added. Enforcement problems Despite the damage, Aaron said the fire department is looking for ways to increase education about fireworks, rather than writing more tickets. One of the reasons is that enforcement can be difficult, he said. Given the sheer number of fireworks discharged over the holiday, Aaron said getting to everyone who breaks the law is tough. Tents in Haysville, Maize, Goddard and other nearby towns often sell fireworks banned in Wichita, making it easy for anyone willing to drive a few miles to get them. Jurisdictional boundaries that confuse some residents also pose a problem, Aaron said. On the fringes of northwest Wichita, for example, some residents have a Maize mailing address, but are living within Wichita police and fire jurisdictions leading some to mistakenly think the fireworks they buy at a tent in Maize are OK to shoot off at home. Aaron suggests a shoot them where you buy them approach to avoid crossing jurisdictional lines. Educating the public is also key, he said. The fire department provides a list of approved fireworks, which is published annually in The Eagle. Copies are available in the city clerks office and at the fire department. Lists of approved fireworks sold by larger Wichita vendors are also posted on the departments website. We try to be sensitive to the public and those kinds of things, Aaron said. Sometimes our customers or citizens, they dont know. So fire investigators will have a discussions with them rather than write tickets. Fire crews are not out there looking for a reason to make someone unhappy and get them in trouble, so to speak, he said.

Firefighters in Wichita expect to get $6.5 million in new apparatus, including nine fire engines and one aerial platform truck.
Deputy Chief Ron Aaron and Jay Newton, the city's fleet and facilities superintendent, said the roughly $6.5 million order includes nine engines, or pumpers, and a truck, or aerial platform, which has a bucket that will extend 100 feet. "The community is buying this stuff, and we appreciate the commitment and support that this community provides the fire department," Aaron said. Pierce Manufacturing of Appleton, Wis., was selected in December to provide the new apparatus after a competitive request-for-proposal process that included two other fire engine manufacturers, Pennsylvania-based KME and Florida-based E-One, Aaron and Newton said. Pierce Manufacturing of Appleton, Wis., was selected in December to provide the new apparatus after a competitive request-for-proposal process that included two other fire engine manufacturers, Pennsylvania-based KME and Florida-based E-One, Aaron and Newton said. Aaron said one fire engine costs about $500,000. He realizes that sounds like a lot of money but adds that an average Wichita fire engine makes 1,500 calls a year. "We try to squeeze everything out of our (engines)," he said. The nine engines being replaced are between 8 and 9 years old, Aaron said, and the truck that is being replaced is 11 years old. In all, the fire department has 27 "heavy apparatus" among 22 stations: 15 engines, seven quints, one rescue and four trucks, he said. Even though the first of the nine new engines is due to arrive this week, it could be October before that first engine is placed into service at Fire Station No. 2 at 1240 S. Broadway, Newton said. In the end, Aaron said, all of the department's firefighters will have some training on the new engines and truck. That's because there may be situations where a firefighter who does not work from one of the new engines may be sent to get a piece of equipment off one. And a hose nozzle or ax may be in an entirely different compartment on the new apparatus. That's a big reason why the new equipment has a different paint scheme, so they are quickly recognizable to any firefighter. "It's not always the best visibility at a scene," Aaron said.
