Blasting & Implosion Permits

Individuals with a State of Florida and Broward County license may apply for a permit to use, store, handle or transport explosives and/or blasting agents in Broward County. Before applying for a permit, you must contact us to set up a “Pre-Blast” conference. In addition, you must:

  • Provide surveys of the site and the surrounding properties/buildings

All permits for blasting and/or implosion expire on December 31. If your permit expires, you must contact us to get a new one. An additional permit fee will apply.

When any blasting or implosion activity is in progress, a seismograph must be used. In addition, our agency’s licensed official will perform on-site monitoring.
