(A)   Application. Any person may file a written application for a display permit on forms provided by the Department of Public Safety to request the use of Fireworks 1.4G. An application must be filed at least 30 days prior to the scheduled public display to allow for sufficient time for investigation and action by the Director of Public Safety, or his or her designee. An application for a display permit to request the use of Fireworks 1.3G will not be considered.
   (B)   Issuance. The Director of Public Safety, or his or her designee, shall determine whether the display shall be of such a character that it may be hazardous to persons or property and, using reasonable discretion, make a decision to either grant or deny the permit. In investigating the propriety of granting or denying the permit application, the Director of Public Safety or his or her designee shall require the following:
      (1)   A certificate of liability insurance with limits of at least $1,000,000 bodily injury and $500,000 property damage if the display is aerial in nature. Non-aerial displays must have a certificate of insurance for a minimum of $500,000 bodily injury and $300,000 property damage insurance. The City of Heath must be named as co-insured on the policy;
      (2)   A site plan including a description of the type and range of display and fallout area map;
      (3)   Time, duration and number of displays;
      (4)   A statement that no explosive or combustible materials will be stored within the city limits;
      (5)   Provision for disposal of unfired fireworks;
      (6)   An individual with at least a Special Effects Operator's License shall handle the display; and
      (7)   Fireworks shall be confined only to the applicant's property.
   Failure to comply with any of these provisions shall be grounds to deny the permit application.
   (C)   Revocation. The permit is subject to the following:
      (1)   Inspection of the display site by the Fire Department 48 hours in advance of the event to ensure general safety and note required changes. The permit will be revoked if the site does not pass inspection and the applicant fails to make the required changes.
      (2)   The Keetch-Byram Drought Index (KDBI) must be less than 575, as determined by the Texas Weather Connection, on the date and time of the event.
