Model rockets are a fun and educational hobby. However, improper use can result in property damage and injuries to people nearby. You must get a Model Rocket Launching Permit from the Salem Fire Department before launching rockets. The fire department may immediately revoke its authorization to use a firing area if it is found that an undue hazard exists.
To apply for a permit:
- Download and complete the permit application.
- Get written permission from the property owner of the proposed launch site.
- Send your completed application to the Salem Fire Department.
- Call the Salem Fire Department to schedule a review of your application.
