You will need this licence if you intend to operate fireworks or initiate firecracker chains at ceremonial occasions. This licence will authorise you to do the following:
- possess, set up and initiate outdoor fireworks at a display covered under a Fireworks Event Permit while under the employ or supervision of a licensed fireworks contractor
- initiate firecracker chains at ceremonial occasions under a Ceremonial Fireworks Notice provided to Police and the Local Council
- initiate indoor fireworks under a permit issued by the Fire and Emergency Services Authority of Western Australia.
This licence will not authorise you to purchase fireworks or make an application for a Fireworks Event Permit. It does allow you to transport certain fireworks by road in limited circumstances. The Agency will place an endorsement on your licence based on your level of experience, skill and knowledge of outdoor fireworks. The endorsement will determine the level of fireworks operations you are authorised to undertake.
Please consult the Contact Officer for more information.
