More Than 3 Decades of Providing the Pyro-Technics for USU Fireworks Show

Cache Valley Daily Wednesday, Jul. 04, 2018

It’s now been 32 years for Al Burns at Fireworks West overseeing the Logan fireworks show at Utah State University. Burns, who is vice-president of the company, was on KVNU’s For the People program which broadcast live from the stadium before Freedom Fire 2018 began Tuesday evening. ... He said technology has changed the show inside the stadium with use of computers that better assist syncing the show to the music. ... “We have five different firing stations for different sizes of shells and each one has their own cage. We have a team of people in each cage, one person to watch what’s going on and another guy to fire the stuff. The people that work hard to set it up, they like to be down there.”
