Blasting requires multiple permits and licenses
Steps to obtain an explosives permit
- Call the City of Topeka Engineer 785-368-3842
- Call the Kansas State Fire Marshal 785-296-3401
- Submit a permit application from the City of Topeka Engineers Office
Also, an explosives license from the Kansas State Fire Marshal must be obtained in that order.
Application for a permit from the Fire Department must be accompanied by a Site Plan, proof of bond or insurance in the principal sum of $100,000 and permits and licenses from the City Engineer and Kansas State Fire Marshal. Prior to issuance of the Fire Department permit, a site inspection will be conducted by a Fire Prevention Inspector to ensure there is a proper storage magazine and adequate signage.
