§ 23-28.28-7. Application for use permit — Emergency permit.

The applicant must submit application to the state fire marshal, on a form issued by the state fire marshal, at least seventy-two (72) hours prior to the requested blast time. In the case of an emergency (an unforeseen hindrance that impedes the progress of a job that will cause financial hardship to the contractor if the hindrance is not rectified within a relatively short period of time) the applicant may apply for a permit to blast not less than twenty-four (24) hours before requested blast time and the state fire marshal may issue the permit. If the state fire marshal issues the emergency permit then applicant must hand deliver, immediately upon issuance by the state fire marshal, a copy of the emergency permit to the city or town clerk in the city or town in which blasting is to be done. Failure of applicant to deliver a copy of the emergency permit shall result in a fine of five hundred dollars ($500) and suspension of license for sixty (60) days.
