Fireworks Explosion in Washington.

Sad news in the fireworks industry today.

Entertainment fireworks in Washington State reportedly had an accident while some of their crews were prepping for an upcoming display, taking one life and injuring two others.  Entertainment fireworks has been in the business for decades with an excellent safety record and some of the most experienced operators in the business today.  In fact, they offered one of the more respected safety training classes in the western U.S. and have successfully fired many high profile displays.  As respected, active members in all facets of the pyrotechnic industry our heart goes out to those involved and we hope this serves as a harsh reminder to the thousands who will be working long days in the coming weeks with pyrotechnics to take ALL safety precautions.
