This book was written by the Pyrotechnic Guild International to accompany their one-day course on pyrotechnic training and the safe use of pyrotechnics in public fireworks displays. It covers everything you would ever need to know on how to set up and legally and safely fire a professional fireworks display. Think of it as your first course in display pyrotechnics school, the first step toward becoming a licensed fireworks display pyrotechnician. It begins with the duties and responsibilities of everyone involved, then covers fireworks, equipment, the pyro crew, information on site selection, and much more all the way to cleanup of the site. The emphasis is on manual, operator-fired fireworks displays vs. electrical firing. 301 pages. Shipping weight 3 lbs.
