What is the Process for Funeral Celebration Fireworks?
Firstly, a member of the family or friend will contact KC’s Fireworks Displays or the funeral home to arrange the delivery of the ashes to KC’s Fireworks headquarters in Glenview Qld. The ashes are respectively and securely stored until they are incorporated into the fireworks by our professional fireworks pyrotechnicians. Photos of the incorporation process can be supplied for peace of mind.
Secondly, one of our courteous staff will discuss the location of the fireworks display and the position of the fireworks launch. You can launch the fireworks on land or water. KC’s Fireworks will organise all fireworks permits, notifications and insurance. KC’s Fireworks displays can also help you with any other service required to help make your day special such as choreographed music, outdoor PA Systems, photography, extra fireworks, special effects, etc.
If your funeral celebration is a large event or special location, we can take care of everything for you. Our event management company Action Events Management can arrange the venue, seating, catering, photographers, clean up, etc. Literally, you just walk in and we take care of the rest. Please call for a detailed quote and details of what you would like to be arranged.
What are the Safety Distances Required for Fireworks?
Every State has various laws and legislation in place to ensure that fireworks displays are conducted safety. In Queensland, the fireworks firing point must be at least 50 metres in all directions away from people (you may be within 10 metres of buildings, and 35 metres for special circumstances in Qld). In NSW, the legislation requires you be at least 30 metres in all directions away from people.
What Permits or Insurance are Required?
KC’s Fireworks takes care of all the permits, notifications, and insurance (20 million indemnity) required for a funeral celebration fireworks display.
How Much Notice is Required?
By Law in most States in Australia, you must give a minimum of 7 days’ notice to conduct any type of fireworks display.
What Areas/Locations Can These Displays Be Conducted?
They can be virtually anywhere where there is enough area such as football grounds, ovals, beaches (subject to Council), sports venues, showgrounds, private properties, lakes, rivers, etc. However, please note that water displays require special aquatic permits which take 30 days to finalise and there will also be a water-pontoon hiring fee.
What Can I Expect from My Display?
We normally conduct a brief display that starts with some of the special incorporated fireworks and ends with them. In-between we will use an array of multi-shot effects, many often matching the loved one’s favourite colours, etc. Display types range from two minutes up to normal display times of four to five minutes.
What Other Options Are There for This Special Celebration of Life?
Quite often, people organising such an event will have a favourite music track/song they would like to play as the fireworks are being set off. This is no problem. We will work with you on the day and commence firing at the start of the music and end at the same time. If required, we can offer a high-quality outdoor PA system to broadcast this music for you, although we will require access to electricity if on land. If on a water pontoon, we will supply a power generator. Cost of the PA and full music equipment is $750 plus GST. Additional speakers can be incorporated at further cost. We can also offer the name of the loved one in fire rope or fireworks, however this equates to $170 plus GST per letter.
How Do the Ashes Get Forwarded to KC’s Fireworks Displays?
There are two options. You can deliver the ashes to the funeral home if we are working directly with them, or you can send them directly to us via couriers or registered post to our office at 393 Glenview Rd, Glenview. 4553. Qld. The ashes are respectively and securely stored until they are incorporated into the fireworks by our professional fireworks pyrotechnicians.
How Much Does Fireworks Celebration Cost?
There is no set fee as every family’s requirements are different. Generally, the initial starting price for a three-minute fireworks display with ashes incorporated into a range of fireworks starts from $3000 plus GST. This does not include extras, however does include detailed pictures of ashes being imported into fireworks for your records. For more information contact one of our courteous and respectful team on (07) 5494 5089, or contact your respective funeral home.
We understand this is a very sensitive time for family members and we always ensure the entire process is conducted with great respect and integrity. We respect the significance and importance of a “final farewell” and take every effort to create a spectacular and memorable occasion.
