The Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) and the Bureau of Fire Services (BFS) today announced the opening of the 2015 consumer fireworks application period and low impact registration process. All consumer fireworks applications must be submitted by midnight, April 1, 2015. Low impact registrations can be submitted at any time but must be completed at least 10 days prior to sales.
Applicants will notice some updates to the 2015 application process. The home page for fireworks has a new set of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) that applicants will find informative. Also, the step-by-step tutorials are updated and available to assist with the Introduction to Fireworks, Application process, Fire Safety Fee and Citation online payment process, and transfer requests.
Continuing in 2015, applicants will have the ability to report their monthly sales and submit their safety fees online. However, applications will be denied for any applicants who have unpaid safety fees or are missing reports (all zero sales must be reported for the 2014 certificate fireworks season). Plans that are required to be submitted are due April 1, 2015.
When submitting documents for 2015 applications, applicants MUST submit all of the required documents at the time of application or the application will be denied. Also, each document submitted must include the 2015 Certificate number that was issued during the application process.
