#1 Consumer Brand Fireworks Retailer Ensures Americans Enjoy Fireworks Safely
Youngstown, OH -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/14/2016 -- Each year, millions of Americans step outside into the warm summer night to enjoy some spectacular fireworks shows at ballparks, riversides, and outdoor spaces across the country. There are also those fireworks enthusiasts who host their own firework shows in their backyards on a smaller scale, using aerial items, sparklers, fountains, and novelties. It can be easy, therefore, to get so wrapped up in all of the hype and excitement of the fireworks themselves that people often fail to properly secure their own safety and that of others. For many years now, Phantom Fireworks has helped consumers enjoy fireworks safely. They do so with in-depth "how to" videos, Safety Pamphlets, and multiple safety checks.
Phantom Fireworks is a charter member of the American Fireworks Standards Laboratory (AFSL). The AFSL operates the China Fireworks Quality Improvement Program – a testing program administered by an independent, internationally recognized testing laboratory. All fireworks sold by Phantom Fireworks are tested at the factory level in China for compliance with CPSC-enforced U.S. manufacturing and performance standards before shipment to the United States. Legislative and safety concerns are reflected in the company's membership and participation in the American Pyrotechnics Association, American Fireworks Standards Laboratory, National Fireworks Association, National Council on Fireworks Safety, Inc. and a host of state and local organizations.
For over 40 years, Phantom Fireworks has been delivering thrilling sparks, crackles, and bursts for enthusiasts young and old. As the #1 consumer brand fireworks retailer from coast to coast, Phantom Fireworks is no stranger to putting on a good show to fulfill customers' never-ending desire for fireworks. They operate 75 permanent showroom locations nationwide and over 1,200 roadside tents and stands coast to coast. With everything from sparklers to fountains to 500 gram aerial repeaters and finales, everyone is sure to leave with a huge smile of satisfaction.
"Fireworks are synonymous with the 4th of July, and we want to ensure everyone enjoys them safely," said Bruce Zoldan, CEO of Phantom Fireworks. He continued "Our Fireworks University section at fireworks.com details all the proper precautions fireworks enthusiasts should use to make certain their friends and family are a safe distance from the action.
