A licensed Public Display Operator is responsible for the Public Display Permit application and must be present and supervise anyone assisting with the display. In order to become a licensed Public Display Operator an individual must take a test over state regulations. There is no charge to become a licensed Public Display Operator. Licenses from other states will notbe accepted. The test is scheduled once a month.  It is also given at Fire School in May.  The test schedule for   2017 is available and the test schedule for  2018 is also available.

If you want to take the test, you may download the application and mail it to our office. You must also complete the Citizen Attestation Form and mail it to the address below. The Citizen Attestation Form can NOT be emailed back to the department. This form is included in the previous link or you can have Carmen mail out a copy of the forms.
