Fireworks Misfire

Posted June 26th, 2023

During the fireworks display that was the grand finale to Saturday’s FunFest celebrations in Callander, one of the fireworks unfortunately misfired. This unusual occurrence caused some minor injuries to attendees and some alarm in the crowd of spectators. The Municipality acknowledges that this occurred despite the safety precautions that were taken before and during the event. These precautions included having trained personnel who are certified in fireworks operations looking after the display and ensuring a carefully measured safety area, as well as having emergency services on site. Only minor injuries were sustained; however, no one was seriously injured.
In the concern of the moment, it was wonderful to see our community come together to assist those who were affected by the misfire. Our first responders immediately assisted the affected individuals. We thank the other individuals in attendance who stepped in to assist others and ensured they did not need emergency services. Though the Municipality, as always, took the necessary precautions to minimize the inherent risk in viewing fireworks, we sympathize with those who were affected by the incident, and we are proud of our community for supporting each other when the need arose.
