Advertisements, letterbox drops (unless this has been a significant dollar value…we will advise on booking). Many companies retain up to 50% or more of the total show value!
Total Fire Ban – Outdoor displays
If a total fire ban is declared by the CFA, firework displays generally do NOT get an exemption.
Exemptions usually only apply to major events such as NYE etc. when conditions are acceptable to the CFA.
The CFA has the FINAL decision with regard to firework displays on days of Total Fire Ban.
A Professional Fireworks Display can go ahead in most weather conditions, even conditions under which the general public would not expect a fireworks display, so don’t let this overly concern you. Where an amicable decision cannot be reached, then the UFW Display Supervisor allocated to your show will have sole responsibility for making the decision.
Again, if a total fire ban is declared and the display cannot proceed, we retain just $500.00 to cover our costs – site inspections, preparing Fireworks (then undoing the work), Advertisements, letter box drops (unless this has been a significant dollar value…we will advise on booking). Many companies retain up to 50% or more of the total show value.

If a display is cancelled or suspended by the client on arrival or after site set up it will be considered to be presented and will be payable in full.

From time to time UFW may take photos/videos of various displays/events for promotional purposes.
Should you not wish your event filmed please advice us accordingly.
UFW does not clean up any type of confetti discharged.
Firing Site Cleanup
It is inevitable that following a show, the firing site used will contain debris from the display itself. Whilst we always perform a thorough clear up following a show it is very likely there will be some debris remaining. The debris from a fireworks display will only normally be small pieces of paper, small cardboard discs and small pieces of foil (should rain protection be required). This is the same for each and every show, and with each and every other Fireworks Display Company. The cardboard/paper is biodegradable and, if concerned, can easily be dispersed by mowing. If, however you should require a complete and full 100% cleanup, then please notify us in plenty of time so this can be arranged by us having more crew, and additional equipment and we will advise of the fee.
