Topics covered include: hazard management; fireworks construction; operation and characteristics;  fireworks display safety; display equipment; manual display set-up; making repairs to fireworks; manual and electrical display firing; plus transportation and storage.

Each article has been retyped in Microsoft Word, new full color photographs and illustrations replaced many of the original B&W illustrations and B&W photographs. Most of the drawings are now in full color.  This eBook contains 298 color pages. File size 37.1 MB. eBook Version ONLY:

I recently purchased the entire series of your publications and was very impressed with the Pyro Visual Safety Vol 4 and the Display Fireworks Company Training Course v.2.7. ...all in all you have a very detailed and brilliant overall publication that covers every aspect of the industry. I feel your book along with what we already teach is truly going to do every student a great deal of good in their long term goal to operate successfully and safely in the fireworks industry. I would be happy to ensure that every student enrolling purchased a copy of your books as they are the best publications that I have ever seen for the fireworks industry in 30 years.

I bought the books online and have been using them. Excellent material in each of them to use in the training classes.

I highly recommend these books. It will make you a aerial fireworks technician. Mr. Prokes certainly knows the business... display planning event safety and NFPA codes and regulations are all included in his book. Thank you Mr. Prokes.

Volume 1 should be read from front to back from the hobbyist to the professional because even a pro is going to get something out of it. This is the first time I have found something that is so comprehensive. I wish I had found this years ago. I look forward to reading the other volumes especially volume 5 because I want to learn from other peoples mistakes. It's very possible that reading it could save someone from making a mistake that could cost them their life.

Anthony Paganico, Pyrotechnician

This is a veritable GOLD MINE of pyro information for everyone from the casual hobbyist, to the advanced shooter and builders. I went thru the entire 196 pages of Volume 1 and was amazed at the compilation of information Mr. Prokes has assembled in this document. It has [almost] everything you would find in the BATF "Orange Book", the PGI Display Operators Certification Course, articles and charts of data, and lots of really nice pictures.

I would highly recommend everyone download this book and browse thru it. Regardless of your skill level or degree of involvement there is something in here for everyone. Even if it is only a few topics that might be of interest to you, check it out. You won't be sorry. I see many hours of enjoyable reading to be found there.

Wow. Who is Milan Prokes. Someone in the firework world I somehow missed. This was a monumental task I'm sure.... Wow a lot of good info here... Skimmed through it real fast, good info and well thought out.

NWPA, Chris 23, PyroTalk Forum


.... I'm just  going to buy them one at a time. He  really did put a lot of work and time into this. This should be read front to back from the hobbyist to the professional.
