What is the process for fireworks exhibitions?
A permit from local authorities is required for all exhibitions. The permit specifies the date, time, location and various other parameters of how the exhibition will be executed. Authorities inspect the exhibition site before, during and after the exhibition using a State Fire Marshal issued checklist. Only licensed fireworks exhibitors can perform fireworks exhibitions. During the shoot, only registered employees and the certified fire safety official are allowed within the discharge site.


Only licensed fireworks exhibitors can perform fireworks exhibitions. Exhibitors must undergo 6 hours of training on fireworks laws and safety every 3, and must, in turn, relay that training to all employees annually.
