A pest control fireworks permit allows pest control
fireworks to be used for the purpose of scaring away or repelling birds or
animals that are injurious or destructive to the following types of properties:
farms, forests, waste and recycling facilities, airports, golf courses,
properties used for the production of commercially valuable fish or seafood,
estuaries, or properties located outside of an incorporated city. A pest
control fireworks permit is valid until the expiration date of the permit
unless it is revoked or suspended for a violation of ORS 480.110 through
480.165 of OAR Chapter 837, Division 12 as adopted by the State Fire Marshal.
To apply for a pest control fireworks permit, applicants are required to
complete a pest control fireworks permit application and submit it to the OSFM.
There is no fee for this permit.
Please note the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and
Explosives (BATFE) regulates individuals purchasing and storing agricultural
fireworks. Businesses and their employees or individuals will need to obtain an
appropriate license through the BATFE.
