Explosive FX FAQs
Do I need approvals and who do I call first?

Do I need insurance?

How big an area do we need to display the fireworks?
A fallout zone is needed to keep the audience a safe distance from the location where the fireworks are fired. The size of the fallout zone is determined based upon the size of the largest fireworks shell displayed.
What if the weather is bad?
We will do our best to perform the show even in the worse possible weather, we do monitor the weather frequently during the week prior to the show taking place and may modify the plans or effects used to accommodate effects caused by wind direction.
What do I need to do to reserve my date and how much lead-time is needed?
