Meet our fireworks team. We have more than 200 trained pyrotechnicians (firers) who are ranked by seniority and experience. Senior Firers are our team leaders. To become  a Senior Firer a pyrotechnician must have fired at least 20 shows, passed the advanced  Level 2  examination, and been assessed as competent by a panel of other Seniors.
