Episode #68: #SAVEOURFIREWORKS

Hosts: Johnny Starr and Ron the Banker

Special Guests: Spencer Elg (Outside Counsel for the NFA)

Dear Friend of Fireworks –

As you know, the National Fireworks Association (NFA) and its leaders have been working hard to defeat a mis-guided and ill-informed rule proposed by the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) that would dramatically change the landscape of the consumer fireworks industry.

The most recent CPSC meeting on this topic took place late last month and ended without a decision. It appears that all of the comments and feedback from concerned folks has made a difference. The CPSC essentially decided to kick the can down the road with the intent of gathering some additional information.

In this special edition of The Fireworks Brigade, we speak to Spencer Elg, outside counsel for the NFA. Spencer answers our questions about the latest CPSC decision and what we can do to help. #SAVEOURFIREWORKS

Special thank you to Nancy Blogin and the NFA for helping us connect with Mr. Elg.

To learn more about how to get involved in this effort, just Google search #SAVEOURFIREWORKS or email the NFA at nfasafety@gmail.com and tell them how the CPSCs proposed rule would affect you.

CPSC Acting Chairwoman Ann Marie Buerkle can be reached at (301) 504-7978.
You can also email her at ABUERKLE@CPSC.GOV

Special Guests: Rob and Jayden Berk

Johnny Starr and Ron the Banker are at Starr Fireworks in Fargo North Dakota for day one of the annual P.G.I. convention. Historically, when the Fireworks Brigade has recorded at the PGI, the episode was complete with the sound of fireworks bursting in the air and commerce as all the happy little pyros shopped at the Starr Fireworks booth. In what can only be considered a huge mistake by the Pyrotechnics Guild International (PGI), because of some senseless drama last year, Starr Fireworks, the Fireworks Brigade and several other vendors are not welcome this year.
To try and take some of the sting out of the snub, John and Ron get together to record episode 51 of the Fireworks Brigade. Joining them for this episode is Rob Berk and his son Jayden. Rob’s a tremendous father, businessman and a bit of a pyro. Rob and Johnny reminisce about past PGI’s and their mutual friend Larry Lomaz. Jayden’s an amazing teen with some great stories of his own.
