North Andover Fireworks Update

An isolated incident occurred while setting up for the Town's fireworks display this afternoon, which resulted in one injured party, a licensed fireworks technician.  North Andover Fire Department personnel and one co-worker, an off duty Firefighter, on scene rendered medical aid and the technician was transported to an area hospital for further care.  
An inspection of the rest of the display by the North Andover Fire Department and the Massachusetts Department of Fire Services confirmed the safety of the display and compliance with all fire protection regulations.  Additional licensed technicians will be on hand tonight to ensure a safe public display, and the event will continue as scheduled.
