Safety and fireworks go hand – in – hand and safety is tantamount at EFI. Safety is an attitude. It must be cultured and developed. Entertainment Fireworks has a well-developed safety attitude. An understanding of compliance with laws and safety regulations, together with expert planning and execution, is your assurance of a smooth, safe and entertaining display.

  • The founding principles and staff of EFI have many years of impeccable safety records. These principles have worked with local government agencies, and national and international groups for safety in display fireworks. We have stringent safety standards in all areas, from those working in the magazine to those working each show, and even extending to the personnel involved with clean-up. The company safety standards for working on barges is so stringent that national insurance companies are now using our policies as guidelines for other insureds.
