    Any request to use pyrotechnic special effects in performances and to conduct fireworks displays must be approved by the City Commission. Effective February 9, 2007, the Grand Rapids Fire Department became responsible for administering the Pyrotechnic Special Effects Operational Permit (also known as Firework Discharge Permit) process.

    The Fire Department will now be processing all Fireworks Discharge Permits through our office at 38 LaGrave Ave SE. Click here for the application process. There are three (3) applications required.
