A Matter of Safety and Spectacle

Recently I had the chance to learn about an interesting subject from one of our senate district’s most notable entrepreneurs, Warren Pearce of North Reading. Warren and his family own and operate the American Thunder Fireworks Company, and are at the forefront of the discussion about ensuring safety as the technology in this industry evolves. On a recent shoot in West Yarmouth, Mass. Warren invited me to see firsthand how fireworks shows are developed and fired. This was a great opportunity to understand just how much effort goes into keeping us all safe as we are thrilled with the shows that light up the night sky.
