You might also want to put on a demonstration for those in the show that are going to be shooting these blanks. In a safe area, take a paper shopping bag and shoot at it from about five feet. This should impress upon them the danger of shooting someone close up with blanks. They can cause serious injury if proper precautions aren't taken.
Hope this helps.
