- Determine how far away the audience should be from the fireworks displaying
- Establish regulations for state certification of display operators
- Establish permits for fireworks displays
Keep celebrations safe. Make sure you're up on important 2014 NFPA 1123 changes, including:
- New provisions for separation distances for marine preparation areas were added as there are many fireworks display barges being loaded near inhabited buildings and navigable waterways.
