7th Annual Texas Summer Showcase

Received this note from Bryan Jarvis about the 7th Annual Texas Summer Showcase

Dear Fire Educator -

We're pleased to announce the 7th Annual Texas Summer Showcase! It will be held August 27 & 28 at the Denton Civic Center in Denton, Texas.

This is the Seventh year for this exciting event, and it's a great way to get a tune up of your program before going "live." And, if you don't havea program it's a great way to come and get ideas.

We invite you to bring your program - it doesn't need to be polished - and share it with your peers. You'll get valuable critiques and maybe even new ideas to add to your program.
Sign up today and we look forward to seeing your program!

For more information, contact:

Bryan "Ashes" Jarvis

NFPA Firework Video

According to the National Fire Protection Association, each July Fourth, thousands of people, most often children and teens, are injured while using consumer fireworks. Despite the dangers of fireworks, few people understand the associated risks - devastating burns, other injuries, fires, and even death. The Alliance to Stop Consumer Fireworks is a group of health and safety organizations, coordinated by NFPA, that urges the public to avoid the use of consumer fireworks and instead, to enjoy displays of fireworks conducted by trained professionals.

See this video and some great fact sheets on the NFPA website HERE.
