Purchasing fireworks has requirements that must be met.
If you are a municipality (Town, City, Fire Departments, etc)
An ATF permit is not required for government entities. All correspondence should be on official letterhead. Payment must be from the municipality directly. A licensed shooter and a display permit are still required in Nebraska.
If you are an individual, company non-profit, etc.
We must have a copy of your ATF permit signed in ink. If you don’t have an ATF permit yet, Midwest Fireworks Wholesalers recommends that you complete the ATF 5400.13 application (see URL below) and select ‘User of explosives’ for question 12. Your initial application cost for the permit is $100, which is good for 3 years. Renewal for an additional 3 years is currently $50. You will find this form at:
We can help you complete this form and help you meet the storage requirements using our storage facilities. It can take 45 to 90 days for processing, so you should get your application sent in as soon as possible.
Statement of Intended Use
You will be asked to complete this form when you pick up your order. Simply state that you are purchasing fireworks for the purpose of conducting a public fireworks display.
Licensed Display Operator and Display permit
In Nebraska, you must have an approved "Public Fireworks Display Permit" from the State Fire Marshall’s office. The application can be submitted over the Internet, but you must do so at least 10 business days before the display. Once you receive the approved permit by mail, have your local fire chief sign it.

Other important details
Picking up your order
We require 48 hours notice before you arrive to pick up your order.
If you don’t have your own approved storage, then the ATF has very strict regulations on when we can release fireworks to you. You cannot pick up your order until the day of the display (as indicated on the display permit). If this creates a problem for you because you need additional time for setup of a large display, please contact us and we will advise you on how to proceed.
Delivery is available! Please contact us for details.
