The city of Bridgeport, Connecticut, requires any contractors whose work will involve “blasting,” that is, any use of an explosive device to be detonated within the city, to obtain both a permit and a $5000 surety bond.
Section 8.36.340 of the city’s ordinances, mandates the need for a surety bond. Meeting the surety bond requirement through our agency will take a few minutes and will be the easiest part of your licensing process.
You are automatically approved for the $5000 Bridgeport blasting permit bond. We will take an application from you over the phone, and have you pay the premium, which is just $100.
There is no credit review inquiry nor an underwriter review for this bond.
Once the application is completed and the premium is paid, this surety bond is issued to you within a matter of minutes.
Once issued, a copy of the bond can be emailed to you. The original copy, which you will file with the city of Bridgeport, will be sent by the following business day at the latest. You will need to sign the original bond as Principal before filing with the city.
At $100 premium, the Bridgeport blasting permit surety bond is issued for a standard one year term. Thereafter, the bond and the premium are both renewed.
Our agency provides you with the option to prepay this bond for up to 3 years. Prepayment offers to distinct advantages: One is that it lengthens the time between renewals; the second is that it offers you a savings over year to year renewal of the bond’s premium.
The prepayment options and savings for this bond are as follows:
The blasting permit bond is a financial guarantee that you will observe all laws regarding explosives within the city of Bridgeport; and that, moreover, you will hold the city harmless for any damage that you (or any employees of yours) might cause.
