Keeping Fireworks Operators & Spectators Safe

The death of four fireworks operators last has prompted the state to set new guidelines for not only operators, but spectators, as well.

At the Greenville town common the rules mean people will be pushed farther from the action. According to Greenville Fire-Rescue, barricades will be set up 350 feet from firework operators.

The new rules also require pyrotechnicians to pass an exam to become certified and licensed.

The Greenville Jaycees say the company they're using out of Pennsylvania has come to the state to comply with new rules.

The celebration kicks off at 9:15 Sunday night.
