Montgomery Firefighters Working to Keep Riverfront Safe During Fireworks Show


By Glenn Halbrooks

Safety will be the priority for the big fireworks show at Montgomery's riverfront. Montgomery firefighters will be there in case trouble breaks out in the water or on land.

Firefighters say they're expecting a crowd with thousands of people on shore and at least one hundred boats in the water.

If a fire breaks out or there's a water emergency they'll be prepared to respond quickly, including with the department's fire boat.

Was it just horrible advertising by the city for this. The advertised time was 9:15 and there were tons of people downtown waiting. Even folks stopped along the interstate, not realizing the show had already finished. We were even told that there were two sets and waited around for the second. Nice going Montgomery creating such chaos and traffic for nothing. We promised our son fireworks then had the hardest time explaining why he couldn't see any. We should have gone to one of the other local shows. - A very disappointed mom
