How safe is your fire performance?
As safe as possible given that this is, literally, playing with fire. Benjamin strictly adheres to the NAFAA safety guidlines (available for download). This means, amongst other factors, that all tools and equipment are regularly inspected, all fire shows are attended by an additional professional Fire Technician, and that Benjamin is personally well versed and trained in the specifics of risk management and avoidance regarding flame effects in various venue locations.
Can you perform indoors?
Certainly! Permitting notwithstanding, fire performance is absolutely possible indoors. If for any reason fire is not allowed, glow or LED props make a phenomenal substitute, and are also available. Aerials require a propperly safe rigpoint, indoors or out.
Is that real fire?
