Fire, heat threat won't deter Pops

June 28, 2011

Pops in the Park is going to keep its pop this year, officials have decided.

Organizers for the Sunday celebration held an emergency meeting Monday to address fire safety issues surrounding the $40,000 fireworks display and decided that the event will go on as originally planned.

Jan Hansen, chairman of the Pops organizing committee, said all necessary steps will be taken to make the fireworks show as safe as possible.

“Our fire chief, fire marshal and the chief of the volunteer fire department have all assured us they are prepared and ready to address anything that could come up,” Hansen said. “We will have fire department units on hand, the fireworks will be shot off at a designated area and no people or vehicles will be allowed in that area … Every precaution has been taken.”
