TEXAS LITE AND PYRO
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
1. When should I book my reservation for services?
Please book as soon as you know the location and date of your venue as we will need
to start contact with the proper authorities to obtain permits.
2. How much does a Fireworks display cost?
We have some package prices which include product, setup, firing, dismantling, basic cost
of traveling within 75 miles and permits. Extra miles is $1.25 / Basic permit cost is $150.00
For most of our Fireworks Displays we use readily available 1.3g Fireworks. By doing so we
are able to place the Fireworks Displays closer to the audiences, reduce set up time, cost,
liability and permit times.
3. What is a Permit?
Before any Fireworks Display can take place we must contact the local Fire Marshall. They
charge a fee in order to look at our game plan and make sure that it is safe for people and
property. In some cases it's easy to obtain a permit by filing some paper work and making some
phone calls. In other cases it takes meetings and more detail such as scaled map or diagrams.
4. How long does it take to get a Permit?
Normally 1 - 3 days if all the information is available by you the customer. Fireworks Display
site and stage drawings if needs be.
5. What about Safety?
Texas Lite and Pyro uses a very advanced fire control system. Each firework is
independently controlled with an electric fuse. This give us the ability to stop firing the
display within a few seconds. We also use multiple firing locations in case of a product
mishap. In multiple locations we place fire extinguishers for our staff to utilize if needs be. We
station staff members in key locations during the fireworks display. During very large Firework
Displays the Fire Marshall may need to be on hand. In some cases fire crews and equipment
might need to be at the ready. Your local Fire Marshall will make that call. If needs be you
will be billed for their services. (We will brief you about these cost if they apply to your needs.)
5. How long does it take to set up a Fireworks Display?
Depending on the size of the Fireworks Display it could take anywhere from 4 - 7 hours for a
small to medium Fireworks Display to be set up, shot and removed. This does not include the
time to perform an onsite inspection, obtain the permits, travel to pick up the Fireworks or
travel time to the Fireworks Display site. Depending on the Fireworks Display size the larger
the crew we bring.
6. Do you provide assistance to concerts or stage production companies?
Yes, We provide all sort of Special Effects for Concerts, Stage Productions, Films and
Commercials. We also offer chaperon services, were we give your crews a local face with
the Fire Marshall and a licensed staff member on set.
7. What if we need to changer our date due to weather?
In the event that weather is such that Texas Lite and Pyro, in its sole and absolute discretion,
determines that the Service to be Rendered would be impossible, impractical or would
unnecessarily increase the risk of damage or danger to persons and/or property, the parties
agree to immediately hold a postponement meeting at which time an attempt to reschedule the
Services To Be Rendered shall be discussed with a view toward reaching a mutually satisfactory
postponement time and /or date. Customer understands there are expenses associated with
changing dates and / or times in regards to employees pay, travel and the permits. Texas lite
and Pyro will explain to you those additional expenses in the event of a postponement and let
you make the call if you would like to reschedule the Services.
