Bigger fireworks, bigger safety concerns

Jul 3, 2014

We’re celebrating Independence Day as a nation tomorrow, and that means fireworks. Michigan relaxed its fireworks sales law in 2012, so there are now more roadside stands and large retailers hawking their wares.

One of the biggest operations in the area is the American Eagle Super Store in Lansing. Current State’s Kevin Lavery asked store manager Alan Elliott about what’s now legal to sell.

Current State also speaks with John Clark, Fire Chief in Delta Township since 2011. Delta’s annual public fireworks display is tonight at Sharp Park on Elmwood.
