Fireworks Display Requirements



October 22, 2003

 

 

To: All Louisiana College and University Presidents

 

 

From: R.R. "Bob" Cate, Manager
Louisiana State Fire Marshall Office

 

 

RE: Use of Fireworks

 

 

This is to inform you of a recent change in the Louisiana Fireworks Law, which went into effect on August 15, 2003. As a result of this law.  ALL fireworks displays, regardless the type of firework being used must be permitted and performed by a Licensed Pyrotechnic Operator.

 

It has been brought to our attention that numerous athletic events are having fireworks displays without the proper permitting. This memo will serve as "Notice of a change to the Louisiana Fireworks Law". Any infraction after this date may subject your College or University to legal action.

 

Please distribute a copy of this memo to any of your schools that may be affected by the change. If you have any questions, you may access the Law on our website, http://www.dps.state.la.us/sfm/FireWorks.htm or you can reach me at 225-294-4297 for further information.
