An update on the Fireworks Legislation that is being proposed. The bill was heard today in the Natural Resources Committee, there were several from the fireworks industry their along with several fire departments. The industry has changed their stance a bit and are ok with local jurisdiction being able to restrict all types of fireworks, there was also a little disagreement from the industry with using the National Fire Danger Rating System. Overall though the committee agreed that there does need to be a change in the current law. The committee voted on amending the Bill. The amendment takes sections K-N out and takes the State Forestry out of the Title. The amendment allows for local jurisdiction to ban fireworks, but not the state. This was done because a few of the Committee members didn’t like the fact that the State could come into a jurisdiction and override the decision of not banning fireworks.  The Bill will be heard again in the same Committee on Monday morning in RM 309 at 08:00. The committee plans on taking action on the amended Bill at this time, so if you can please show up in support of the Bill.

Advocating for Home Fire Sprinklers

One of the goals of the Fire Sprinkler Initiative (FSI) is to give home fire sprinkler advocates the tools they need to encourage local governments to adopt legislation mandating these life-saving systems for all new one- and two-family homes. Members of the fire service and other safety advocates are in a unique position to influence the legislative process as leaders in the community. They can speak to the death and destruction they see every day caused by home fires and how home fire sprinklers can help reduce these painful losses.
