Certain activities that are deemed as potentially hazardous are not allowed unless a permit has been issued. The purpose of the permit is to insure that any activity that is conducted that may be potentially hazardous is conducted according to recognized standards of safety. The following is a list of required permits and their associated fees.

Permits may be required for activities not listed in the "Permit Requirements" document, at the Fire Marshal's discretion.

Additional Information


In addition to permits, in order for business to conduct certain activities, certification may also be required. The certification process insures that various businesses and their employees have the proper aptitude, experience and equipment to safely perform a specific hazardous activity. Additionally, we assure that the company is bonded and insured to protect the owner and the city from any losses in case of accident. The certification process includes :

  • Work History Resume - includes the location, contract information and nature of any prior jobs you may have completed.
  • Prior Certifications - including certifications from other cities and states.
  • Documented Training
  • Required Federal Licenses for handling Explosives (if applicable).
  • Proof of Insurance
  • An Interview with the Fire Marshal
