explosives warning sign

All blasting work or processes with explosives, including storage, require a Blasting Permit from DPS to ensure compliance with applicable codes and standards and to ensure public safety.

Please note that fireworks are addressed in a separate permittting and inspection process on our Fireworks Permit and Inspection process page.

At this time, we are requesting that all permit applications and payments, including supporting documentation for review, be submitted electronically. In lieu of paper documents, please email DPS.eServicesFPCC@montgomerycountymd.gov to provide the required information for review.
