What is a fireworks permit bond?
In some states, cities, and counties, you need a surety bond to obtain a permit to display fireworks. Fireworks bonds are three-party contracts between a principal, an obligee, and a surety.
- Principal: The fireworks display permit holder
- Obligee: The government agency requiring the bond
- Surety: The insurance carrier (surety company) that issues the bond
In some states, the use and possession of fireworks are illegal. Other states allow certain parties to display fireworks publicly if approved for a permit first. Often, a prerequisite to being approved for a permit is securing a license bond.

Who needs a fireworks permit display bond?
If your state or municipality requires you to pull a permit before using fireworks in the area, you may need to obtain a bond first. A surety bond guarantees the state (or other government entity) that the policyholder will cover any damages they cause during a fireworks display by breaking the surety agreement.
For example, if you use an illegal explosive and destroy part of someone’s property, you will be liable for reimbursing that party for the damages if they file a claim. Your surety provider will cover valid claims against your bond upfront, but you must repay them in full – up to the bond limit.
How much does a fireworks surety bond cost?
