Albany-- As thousands of eyes looked in awe at the fireworks Wednesday night, the eyes of safety officials were making sure everyone was safe.
Fireworks can be dangerous. The Albany Fire Department was on standby just in case any of those dangers surfaced.
Several firefighters along with five trucks and even a boat were on hand to protect both the crowd and the pyrotechnics crew in the event of any dangerous sparks.
"We've got equipment in place to cover the fireworks, the explosives themselves in the event that something goes wrong, we've got equipment in place to cover them and equipment in place to evacuate the people that are close by," said Lieutenant Jared Warren with the Albany Fire Department.
The fire danger is high right now because of the drought. Lieutenant Warren says the fire department responded to several brush fires July 4th caused by fireworks.
