The local school athletic field is surrounded by homes, but it is still used for occasional fireworks displays. The visual displays cause no problems, but the fireworks packages that are purchased by the fire companies contain a number of non-visual fireworks that are only intended to make earth-shaking noise. This type of firework is for use in large parks, not in small areas surrounded by houses. These concussion grenades should be eliminated from such shows.
