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”.

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 attorney dedicated to protecting Floridians, I  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
