Cat 3 fireworks training day 2015

Last weekend we put on our Category 3 fireworks training day for the fireworks team at Hazelwood School.   The school has its own display and we were delighted to help out with the training for the new team.

The day comprised a classroom session covering types of fireworks, fireworks and hazard type classifications, Net Explosive Content, fireworks storage, display site planning, notifications, types of fuses, display design, risk assessments, fireworks prep, display site set up, personal protective equipment and firing equipment, de-rigging, and clear up.   Then the team were let loose on a decent lot of material and they then designed, prepped and fired a five minute show.   Chris ran the classroom work while Nick rigged up some examples of good and bad practice and did some practical demonstrations.

Good luck to the guys for the November display.  We might turn up and watch 🙂
