As a Miami lawyer and father I am concerned about unlicensed and uninsured fireworks vendors. Florida requires vendors be licensed, yet there is no way for the average consumer to quickly verify this. So, I have written to Florida’s Safety Program Manager for the Bureau of Fire Prevention asking if Florida’s website has a link for consumers to verify whether or not fireworks vendors are licensed. And the answer is: “no”.

Now on behalf of Floridians, we have to find out how this can be changed. I urge you to start by writing the Program Manager requesting this link be added to their website. SFMlogo_site.gif

Lets try to get this done by New Years 2011. If you want to get more involved in this effort, please contact me. As an attorneys dedicated to protecting Floridians we feel this is an important change that might prevent further injuries. According to ABC News last year two people were killed and 9000 people were treated at emergency rooms by fireworks mishaps nationwide
