Yup, it happens. On the night of July 4th, I was walking by the Salem Fire HQ, and E-1 came absolutely screaming out of the bay, blasting the air horns (which were pretty impressive)and having the Q screaming full-blast before they were even off the apron. It was followed by the Deputy Chief and L-1. The incident was fireworks related, as were most of the incidents that day and night.
yeah fireworks and boston dont mix well (i saw you go to essex aggie,i went to malden catholic). i remember back in 2000 medford did some fireworks display down by the mystic river and they torched like 500 feet of brush along the banks of the river. my neighborhood in somerville on the other side of the river got coated in ash and fragments of exploded fireworks.
Nice incident, I like the way you are showing everyone the dangers of fireworks. I love that line up in Station 1. p.s. the guy in the red car must be really annoyed he had to let everything past :) only joking. Again nice incident with a great set up.
