Don't let the excitement and drama of pyrotechnics turn tragic. Insist on the 2011 NFPA 1126: Standard for the Use of Pyrotechnics Before a Proximate Audience to protect property, operators, performers, support personnel, and the viewing audiences where these effects are used indoors or outdoors with a proximate audience. Application includes use in conjunction with theatrical, musical, or similar performing arts productions in theaters, stadiums, concert halls, etc.
